Optimistic Winnipegger wins $1 million!

    WINNIPEG, April 24 /CNW/ - Frank Clark of Winnipeg is $1 Million richer,
thanks to a WESTERN 649 ticket!
    Frank regularly buys tickets for the Wednesday and Saturday lottery
draws. Like many players, he checks his tickets from the last draw when he
buys his tickets for the next.
    On Wednesday, April 22nd, Frank stopped in at the Shell station at 1134
St. Mary's Road. While there, he checked his LOTTO 6/49 and WESTERN 649
tickets from the April 18th draw at the self-serve ticket checker, and he was
happy to see that his LOTTO 6/49 ticket won $10. Then, he checked the WESTERN
649 ticket.
    "I saw a whole lot of zeros," said Frank, "and I thought to myself, `Holy
- I've won a million dollars!'"
    Frank said he remained surprisingly calm when he learned of his good
fortune. "I guess I've always expected to win," he smiled. "It was just a
feeling. You could say I'm an optimist."
    Frank said he will share the windfall with his family, but also plans to
seek some sound financial advice.
