Winning $127,312 on LOTTO 6/49 came as a complete surprise for Danny and Ann Smith of Elrose.  Danny knew their ticket had won, but didn’t realize just how big the win was!


 
“I called WCLC and asked how much getting five numbers correct was worth,” said Danny. “The lady said approximately $2,400. So, I thought I would head for Saskatoon and pick up the prize.”
 
When he arrived at the Prize Payout Office, he was stunned to learn the actual prize amount. 
“When she ran my ticket through the terminal she said, ‘Oh, you’re the one,’ and I asked, ‘What do you mean?’” said Danny. “I was thinking, ‘Why am I so special?’ When she said it was worth $127,312, I was stunned and just about fell down.”
 
Danny forgot about the Bonus number. He had matched the Bonus number in addition to the five main numbers to win the second highest prize category on LOTTO 649. 
 
Danny purchased the Quick Pick ticket for the September 7th draw at the Elrose Pharmacy, located at 203 Main Street in Elrose. The Smiths plan to share their winnings with family.
