Ever dreamt of waking up in the morning, quitting your job and doing literally whatever you want for the rest of your life, simply because you know you can afford it?
Well that incredible dream has officially come true for not one but two lucky people from Quebec. According to Casino Reports, two ordinary people, just like you and me, have had their lives changed overnight, after they won over CA$1,000,000 playing Lotto 6/49.
Catherine Lemaitre, one of the millionaires, bought the first lucky ticket ahead of the regular draw at the Jean Coutu outlet in Magog. She won big time after the July 17th draw – but she didn’t even realize it at first! We can only imagine the incredible surprise she must have experienced when she found out she had hit the big-time.
The second instant millionaire, Vincent Chamberland-Cliche, is just 24 years old but he’s already set for life, thanks to his big lottery win. He bought the ticket at the Petro-Canada gas station ahead of the August 3rd draw. There’s no question that he’ll remember that date for the rest of his life!
And finally, while Doris Costain from Kamloops, British Columbia did not become a millionaire overnight, she still walked away with a fantastic prize of CA$500,000, which she said she would be using to fund a dream holiday to Ireland. Now that’s a good use of prize money!
