The lucky ticket holder is now significantly richer with over CA$16.5 million to her name, thanks to the fan-favorite Lotto 6/49 game. The winner has now claimed her hefty reward.

Every year Lotto 6/49 makes lots of dreams come reality as it rewards its players with hundreds of millions in prizes. The Edmonton resident is now the latest Canadian to join the list of Canadian lottery millionaires. According to the Crown, the winner is the 54th Albertan and the tenth Edmontonian to take home a lottery prize of CA$1 million or more in 2021.

Mega Prize Claimed

Ms. Narayan arrived at a WCLC office to claim the prize which estimates to be CA$16,511,291.40. She revealed that a mix of emotions run through her after scanning the Lotto 6/49 ticket and seeing the many numbers on the screen. Her ticket was the winning one for the jackpot in the November 10 draw and her lucky numbers were 2, 7, 18, 19, 23, and 25.

The Alberta resident also shared that she purchased the life-changing ticket from the Canadian Tire Gas Bar located at 11839 Kingsway Avenue NW in Edmonton. She says that she is still considering how she will spend the money, but she already has some ideas in her head. Her intention is to make some home changes, as well as gifting her youngest daughter a car for her upcoming 21st birthday.

Record-Breaking Atlantic Win

This week, the Atlantic Lottery Corporation reported its largest ever Scratch’N Win prize in the history of the Atlantic region. The record-setting ticket belongs to the Charlottetown couple Susan Behi and Mehdi Shahsavari. The Prince Edward Island pair will now enjoy a prize worth over CA$3 million, thus surpassing the previous record of CA$2.5 million Leisa Coolen of Hubbards, from N.S. in 2018.

After claiming their ticket, Ms. Behi shared that the winning has caught her completely off guard despite always playing the game with high hopes. The winning couple is not quite sure how they will spend the pleasant reward, but helping their two children will be the main priority. The winning ticket was sold at Downtown Convenience in Charlottetown.

This has not been the only major lottery win in the Atlantic region, as not long ago the ALC announced that a Newfoundland and Labrador ticket holder has won a lifelong cash prize. The lucky winner was determined in the November 15 draw of the Daily Grand lottery and he or she is set to receive CA$25,000 per year for the rest of their life.
