A lucky Edmundonian will celebrate Christmas as a millionaire this year.
Lorna Altrera says her parents have visited the city, and her father needs something, so they gave him money and asked him to take some lottery tickets.
"The weekend went by and he suddenly appeared in my work with the ticket and told me I won the lottery," Altrere said on Friday. – I could not believe it.
The winning ticket "Lotto 6/49" was guaranteed a prize pool at the 26th season and was purchased at 7-Eleven at 341 Kirkness Rd. NW in Edmonton.
Altrere says it takes some time to get used to being a millionaire, and she still has no plans for her profits.
"Right now I'm enjoying the thought of having a million dollars," she said. "This is a great opportunity and this is very striking, and I will make real plans for the money.
