You can’t buy a house for a dollar, but Lynda Curlette will be able to become a homeowner thanks to a $1 purchase. She paid $1 to add EXTRA to her LOTTO 6/49 free play, and she won $250,000 on the game’s July 22 draw.
“I checked the numbers online,” she said, “I sighed an instant sigh of relief and thought ‘Holy cow! I won $250,000!’”
The Nanton resident said she only had one thing in mind when she discovered her win.
“I’m going to buy a house,” she said. “I’ve been thinking about it for a while now and it’s been a dream of mine for quite some time.”
The new winner said she will also look into taking a trip to a warm destination.
Curlette picked up her winning ticket at Shop ‘N Go, located at 2204 20 Street in Nanton.
