Burnaby woman wins $3.2M jackpot
Anne Ip of Burnaby was all smiles after winning almost $3.2 million in the Lotto 6/49.
Ip, 66, matched all six numbers in the Aug. 14 draw to win the $3,197,183-jackpot.
“My first reaction was awe,” said Ip, a mother and grandmother. “I’m overwhelmed. It’s unreal after you discover you’ve won this much money.”
She purchased her winning ticket at the lottery retailer in Lougheed Town Centre mall.
“I’ve shared the news with my immediate family,” she said. “I can’t believe my eyes!”
So far, Ip plans to buy a new car then go house hunting in Burnaby.
