A new millionaire in Winnipeg

A new millionaire in Winnipeg, Vladimir Volenyuk

Everyone dreams of hitting a lottery jackpot, but not everyone even tries and buys lottery tickets. Life is full of surprises, not always good ones, but sometimes it's just your lucky day!

Our fellow Winnipegger Khalaf Shammo had always dreamt of winning the lottery, so he did his part and bought a ticket. And he is now the latest winner of the LOTTO 6/49 draw.

A new Winnipeg millionaire plans to start a family business and use his latest winning for that. His winnings are worth a guaranteed prize of $1 million.

 “My heart was going a million miles a minute!” His winnings are worth a guaranteed prize of $1 million. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to set up a better life for me and my family,” he said.

It is such an inspirational story, dreams really come true if you have a strong faith and truly believe in it!  

Shammo purchased the “dream” ticket at BG Fuels on Bison Drive in Winnipeg for only $4, so now it turned into a million dollars. The lottery draw was on January 2nd and now we have one more millionaire in our city!

In 2018, 16 Manitobans won prizes of $1 million or more. Twelve of those winners were in Winnipeg. Fellow Winnipeggers let us hope the luck will find every one of us in the new year, 2019 is here. Happy New Year!
