Helen Fortune’s Newfound Fortune

Posted on July 23, 2015 by Kimberly Goshterson

Good news has arisen from the June 17th draw of Lotto 6/49. A Cumberland County woman named Helen Fortune managed to win the big $1 million prize. She bought the ticket from the Circle K gas station, where she works, and even her boss will receive a hefty seller’s prize of 1 per cent after she claims her lottery winnings.

What to do with a Million Dollars

Fortune stated that she and her husband will be using the money to eventually purchase a brand new house, to pay off some bills, and to aid their family members in their lives. Overall though, the first thing they want to actually purchase is a brand new washing machine.

Purchasing a Lotto Ticket as a Lotto Ticket Retailer

She purchased the ticket using the Retailer Play feature that the lottery corporation has in place in order to give the retail employees who sell the tickets the ability to play the game. This causes the winner to be subjected to a 30 day waiting period if the tickets used did not have a Retailer Play stamp, as part of the Atlantic Lottery’s player protection mechanism.

Lotto 6/49

The money was won through Lotto 6/49, a long standing and well respected lottery in the area that’s been serving Canada faithfully ever since it was first founded way back in 1982. Over the decades they’ve been around, there have been many winners that have had their lives changed overnight. Some of their more newsworthy accomplishments include being the lottery that has given out the largest single jackpot in Canada’s history, which was won on April 13th of 2013 at a sum of $63.4 million. Without a doubt, they’re one of the most popular lotteries in Canada and are bound to make even more people millionaires in the coming years.
