Perfect Timing for $1 Million Windfall in Fort McMurray!



    ST. ALBERT, AB, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Winning the lottery is good anytime, but
for Shannon Hutt, the timing of winning $1 Million on WESTERN 649 couldn't
have been better.
    The exciting discovery countered the news that a few members of Shannon's
family are being laid off from their jobs in Fort McMurray. "This is just so
overwhelming. You go through so many emotions!" exclaimed Shannon about
winning.
    Although the Maritimes resident doesn't often buy lottery tickets, her
partner mentioned buying tickets for the big LOTTO 6/49 draw which was
estimated at $43 Million. "It caught my attention," she remembered. Shannon
went to the Mac's Convenience Store at 9912 King Street in Fort McMurray and
randomly picked five sets of numbers including one set of birthdates to play
on WESTERN 649 for the January 24th draw. However, it ended up being one of
the additional Quick Pick Selections on the game that would prove lucky for
her.
    On Saturday evening following the draw, Shannon went on the Internet to
check the winning numbers. "When I saw that one line had all six numbers, I
was excited but I didn't know how much I won." Her partner read there was just
one winner of the game's Top Prize. "That's when I found out I had won $1
Million!"
    "I couldn't sleep at all on Saturday night!" continued the winner.
    Now that Shannon is $1 Million richer, the winner said she and her family
plan to return to the Maritimes and buy a home there. "I may buy something for
myself later, but right now I just want to get things set up to move back
home."
