NB home to Sask.'s latest millionaire

Saskatchewan's newest millionaire is Sandra Lee Frank of North Battleford.
According to a Saskatchewan Lotteries press release, Frank was “tripping on air” after she discovered her win of the  $1 million guaranteed prize on the Saturday, July 28 Lotto 6/49 draw.
“The feeling that washed over me was indescribable,” she remembered. “It’s surreal. You always hope for it, but you never think in a million years it will ever happen to you.”
Frank bought her winning ticket – a $14 quick pick Lotto 6/49 ticket for the July 25 and 28 draws – from the No Frills Gas Bar. She discovered her win Aug. 1, when she stopped at another service station to fuel up her vehicle.
“I scanned it at the ticket checker in the store, and I saw a one with a bunch of zeroes,” she said. “I couldn’t tell right away how much it was. I was pretty sure it was more than $10,000, but I was pretty flustered. I just put the ticket right back in my purse.”
Frank stopped in at her mother’s for coffee and a visit, but it wasn’t long before she went back home.
“My mind just wasn’t there,” she said. “I wanted to get home to tell my husband.”
The happy winner said she’ll take her time making plans for her windfall, but she has a major goal in mind.
“I was looking at being able to retire in eight or nine years,” she said. “It’s going to be a lot sooner now.”
Frank exactly matched the winning guaranteed prize draw number – 34802009-02 – on the July 28 draw. She’s the eighth Saskatchewan resident to claim a lottery prize of $1 million or more so far in 2018.
