Lethbridge Lotto Winner Cashes In $1.5 Million Ticket

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:   Michelle Kish only buys lottery tickets when she thinks of it, and she’s grateful that she did on one particularly lucky occasion.

 

Kish won $1.5 Million on the July 24th LOTTO 6/49 draw, after buying a $5 Quick Pick ticket at Southview Gas King, at 2610-16 Avenue in Lethbridge.

 

One of the Selections on that ticket exactly matched all six numbers drawn on the Wednesday evening draw – 2, 5, 12, 22, 44, and 48. She shared the $3 Million Jackpot with another ticket, purchased in Quebec.

 

The new Lotto winner discovered her win when she stopped on her way to work and checked the ticket at a self-serve Ticket Checker.“I wasn’t sure how much it actually was, but I signed the ticket right away, just to be sure,” she remembered. “I brought it over to the girl at the counter and asked her if I was seeing things.”

 

Michelle never did make it in to work that day. She plans to use some of her prize to buy a house.

 

The first LOTTO 6/49 draw was held on June 12, 1982.  The richest win for a Lethbridge ticket holder was for a draw on November 14, 2012 and was worth  $45,677,260.50
