“Oh my! I just can’t believe it,” the stunned winner said.
“I’ve been playing those numbers for years and years. I’ve only ever had one big win with them, which was around $1,000, and I thought that was wonderful!”

“There are a lot of things she’d like to do but it’s just not possible on the pension. Now she can do it all!” the winner’s daughter exclaimed.
The winning registered ticket was purchased at Claremont Newsagency, 29 Main Road in Claremont.
