Don and June Katona are the latest Saskatchewan couple to win the lotto 6/49.
The Katona’s purchased their ticket at the Rexall Drugs location on Albert street, and later found out they were $2.5 Million richer.
Don Katona said it was just a normal day before he checked his tickets.
“I went right back to where I bought the ticket at Rexall Drugs and I checked it twice,” Katona said. “I wanted the girls to check it, but they were busy setting out new sale tickets on their product, and she told me to go check them myself, so I went and I checked a few tickets, then checked this one, and put it to the side (and I thought) it couldn’t be.”
Don says he plans to continue to play the lottery as he has done since he was 18 years old.
June Katona said it was a moment of shock when they found out they won.
“I had no clue that he won, we walked in, I didn’t even realize that anything was off until he said that we had to phone after and check,” she said. “then I was like ‘how many zeroes are on that thing? That one’s a big one!'”
In the last couple of months, six different prizes of one million dollars or more have been won in Saskatchewan.
