WINNIPEG - Six nursing home coworkers are celebrating the biggest local lottery win in over a year.
Marie Saltel, Cheryl Norman, Karan Lajoie, Karen Roche, Tuan Anh Pham and Louise Pinel are basking in their windfall after taking home a huge $5 million win in the July 25th Lotto 6/49 draw.
“It’s unbelievable. It still doesn’t feel real. I feel like I’m dreaming,” said Saltel. She claimed the prize on behalf of the group.
Saltel was also the one to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket the day before the draw at Dakota Family Foods at 1099-St. Mary’s Road. It’s something she’s done for the group every week for the ten years.
