BCLC: Lunch Break Turns Lucky for Lotto 6/49 Winner

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 17, 2012) - Victoria resident, Barbara Singer, is feeling much better after winning a $3.3 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot.

Singer was under the weather and went to the store for ginger ale. She also bought a Scratch & Win and Lotto 6/49 ticket.

"I won twenty five dollars on my scratch and win," laughed Singer. "I was so excited that I forgot all about my Lotto 6/49 ticket."

Singer went for lunch the next day at work with her prize money.

"While out on my lunch at work I checked the Lotto 6/49 ticket," continued Singer. "I couldn't believe my eyes. I just kept screaming 'I won three freaking million dollars!'"

The lucky ticket was purchased at Don's Market on Niagra St. and Menzies St.

After checking her numbers, Singer calmly went back to work for the rest of the afternoon.

"It's all been such a blur. The first thing I want to do is go on a Hawaiian vacation with my family," added Singer.
