Longtime Edmonton, Canada resident Saraswati Louis had planned on visiting family abroad in the coming months. Paying for the trip just got a whole lot easier, thanks to her winning the January 21st LOTTO 6/49 drawing, where the jackpot was a cool CAD $2.5 million!

Louis regularly purchases tickets for several lotteries, including Canada’s popular LOTTO 6/49, with her son being the one to go to the store to pick the numbers and buy the actual ticket. When he returned home last month and alerted his mother of the win, she wasn’t sure if he was telling the truth or not! “I kept asking him if he was telling me the truth or if he was just trying to fool me!” she remarked. The happy winner went on to say that she buys tickets in the hopes of winning, but was shocked when she actually did!

Discovering her win over a month ago, Ms. Louis told of how she used the last 30 days to prepare herself for the win, and the fame that comes with it. Asked how she will use her win, Saraswati said first and foremost, she will go visit her two children, one of whom lives in Fiji, and the other in Australia. After that, her plans include helping out her family with debts, and upgrading her home.

The winning numbers that draw were 3, 15, 17, 35, 44 and 46. The current LOTTO 6/49 jackpot is just a tad higher than Louis’s win, at CAD $3 million. Don’t miss out on this jackpot , make sure to get your tickets on theLotter.
