A $1 Million win left two Winnipeg cousins stunned.
Arlene Culis and Vanessa Sofronio are feeling pretty lucky lately. The cousins, who have been playing LOTTO 6/49 together for the last couple of months, won $1,000,000 on the July 13 LOTTO 6/49 draw.
"I checked the numbers online," said Arlene. "I was surprised, shocked really. I just sat there, gawking at the screen for a little while."
After discovering the win, Arlene went home and told Vanessa, who is also her roommate. "I got teary-eyed," said Vanessa. "I couldn't believe that we won a million dollars. It still hasn't sunk in, to be honest."
The happy winners haven't made any concrete decisions for their winnings, but they have a few ideas to get them started.
"I want to put some money away for my kids' education," said Arlene. "And I want to put some money into savings for my family."
"So far, all I can think about is paying off my Jeep," said Vanessa. "I can't think of anything else right now, I still can't believe that it's real."
Culis and Sofronio purchased their winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket at City Place Lotto, inside City Place Mall at 333 St Mary's Avenue in Winnipeg.
Congratulations Arlene and Vanessa!
