Tumbler Ridge's Vivienne Mills is the lucky winner of the $10 million BC 6/49 jackpot.
The grandmother wants to spend her money on her two children and four grandchildren.
“I want to set the kids and the grandkids up right away,” Mills explained in a press release. “We’re looking forward to paying off our grandkids’ education, their student loans and helping them buy a house.”
And a little something for herself.
“Well, I’d like to buy a new car,” she said. “Right now we have a truck, and it’d sure be nice to have a smaller car that’s easier to get into parking spots!”
She had purchased the ticket on April 3.
“I got an e-mail notification saying I won a prize. I was expecting to see a free ticket, maybe a dollar,” said Mills. “Then I saw a lot of zeros and thought I was seeing things so I woke up my husband and asked him to look.”
