Darcy Phillips learned that winning on the lottery is all about luck. The Swift Current man  chose his own numbers on his WESTERN 649 Combo Play ticket, but when all was said and done, it turned out to be an additional Quick Pick set of numbers that proved lucky. That Quick Pick matched five out of six numbers and the Bonus to win $50,750!


Darcy bought his winning WESTERN 649 ticket at Westend Grocery located at 301-6th Avenue NW in Swift Current the evening of the June 2nd draw. The ticket was a $7 7- Number Combination, which gives the player seven numbers recorded in all seven possible combinations of six.  
Following the draw, Darcy phoned the Winning Numbers telephone line and discovered his win. 
“I wrote the numbers down and then phoned again to be sure the numbers were correct,” he said. “When I realized it was a major win, I got excited!”
Because his ticket was a Combo Play, Darcy won one 5/6+Bonus prize and several subsidiary prizes totaling $50,750!

“I thought that I may not be able to sleep that night but I had no problem,” he laughed.
Darcy plans to pay off his debt and invest the rest of his winnings.
