$1M Lotto ticket purchased at Winnipeg Square, 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!

Theresa Marcelino bought a ticket for the Jan. 30 6/49 draw at Kim’s Lottery Link in Winnipeg Square and is now “living in a dream.”

“Winning a million dollars just doesn’t feel like a real thing,” Marcelino said in a statement released by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Friday.

Marcelino said she plans to use the win money to pay off her condo and will share some of it with her daughter.

Just a few weeks ago our fellow Winnipegger hit a jackpot in lotto draw. 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.

So now we have more millionaires 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 2019 year!
