In the quiet town of Reserve Mines, Nova Scotia, live a dear couple – both in their 70’s – who have been married for 52 years. Living a quiet life their whole lives, they are now household names in the area, after winning CAD $1 million in January 7th Lotto 6/49 raffle drawing!

The McLean’s are both retired – Maureen with the local school board, and William as a supervisor in the coal industry. Married for 52 years, the couple have been playing the lottery since the 60’s, with numbers comprised of family birthdays and anniversaries.

While checking the ticket at their local convenience store last week, Maureen told her husband that they either won a lot of money, or the machine was broken, upon seeing the matching numbers! Crying all the way home, the couple told their two sons, who both have families of their own. The happy couple plan on sharing the wealth with their children and grandchildren, along with taking a tour of Graceland and visiting Alaska. This week’s Lotto 6/49 jackpot  is up to an astounding CAD $25 million, you don’t want to miss this draw!
