Thrice is a charm indeed for this Canadian Couple that landed a Lotto 6/49 Jackpot For the third time.The couple had previously won CAD$128,000 back in 1989, then a CAD$100,000 prize in 2010, but carried on playing and have now been rewarded with an incredible seven-figure windfall of CAD$8.1 million /(£4.9 million) .
Barbara was the first to find out about the latest win, and called her husband straight away. She explained to reporters: “He didn’t answer, so I waited five minutes and tried again. That time, he picked up and I said, ‘I’ve done it again’.” Speaking of their plans for the future, Barbara added: “Family comes first - we want to make sure that our daughters and our grandkids are looked after.”
The happy couple, from Alberta in Western Canada, also intend to use some of the winnings to go travelling and move home. Douglas said: “Barbara wants a new house, so she’ll get one.”
