Could this be the start of a lucky lottery streak in Westman?
Sharon Lemoine, of St. Lazare, was surprised to see $126,109.20 flash across the screen after buying a POKER LOTTO ticket on June 16 and adding the ALL IN option for $1.
"It was an instant win," she said. "I saw the amount on the screen and just started screaming."
"I couldn’t believe it," she added. "I really wasn’t expecting to win; I mean, I hoped, but this is amazing."
Lemoine says most of her windfall will be added to her retirement fund, the rest will go toward home renovations and a vacation when it’s safe to travel again.
She purchased her winning POKER LOTTO ALL IN ticket at Haney Grocery and Deli, located at 215 Main Street in St. Lazare. Lemoine bought three hands and added ALL IN to each hand. One of
the hands on her ticket matched a Royal Flush, winning $10,000, plus the $116,109.20 ALL IN jackpot.
