$1 Million WESTERN 649 surprise in Edmonton!



    ST. ALBERT, AB, Feb. 28 /CNW/ - "It doesn't feel real - but it sure feels
good!" That was Joseph Cayen's reaction to winning $1 Million on the
Saturday, February 16th WESTERN 649 draw.
    The Edmonton resident is a regular player of the lottery and enjoys many
different games. "WESTERN 6/49 is my favourite, though - you get two lines for
only a dollar!" he said.
    On the day of the draw, Joseph bought a few tickets with his own numbers
and a few Quick Picks. It was one of the Quick Picks that proved to be the big
winner, purchased at Lucky 7 Market at 10725 - 97 Street in Edmonton.
    That evening, after the Saturday draw, Joseph called the Winning Numbers
Line and wrote down the numbers on a piece of paper. "When I saw that I had
all six numbers on one of the tickets, I thought I'd better get a newspaper in
the morning and re-check - just to make sure I was seeing right!" he chuckled.
    Joseph was indeed seeing correctly, and he had won the game's $1 Million
Top Prize. The new Millionaire said he's often thought about what he'd do if
he ever won the lottery, and he's looking forward to tackling his list. At the
top of that list is a new vehicle.

    NOTE: Media Conferences for lottery wins of a million dollars or more are
recommended to winners,but they are not mandatory. The above winner
respectfully declined to have a media conference, and this release announcing
his win has been issued.
