A Prince Edward Island family couldn’t believe their eyes when they got an email from Atlantic Lottery saying they won Gold Ball draw prize.
John and Norma Jean Griffin from Elmsdale, P.E.I., won just over $1 million in the Oct. 26 Lotto 6-49 guaranteed prize draw.
According to a release, John Griffin had purchased a ticket over the ALC app, and was at the airport when he got the win announcement.
“It usually says you won $4 or something, but it didn’t say, so I thought maybe I won $100 or something,” Griffin told Atlantic Lottery.
“When I pulled it up on my phone it said $1,000,010 and I just thought, ‘I don’t believe that.’”
