Victoria woman wins $3 million in lottery

Barbara Singer went to the store to buy ginger ale and walked out a millionaire

Victoria woman wins three freaking million

Barbara Singer can thank a little bug for a big payday.

The Victoria resident was feeling ill last week and went to the store for ginger ale. She also bought a Scratch & Win and Lotto 6/49 tickets.

“I won $25 on my Scratch & Win,” said Singer with a laugh. “I was so excited that I forgot all about my Lotto 6/49 ticket.”

Singer went for lunch the next day at work with her prize money.

“While out on my lunch at work I checked the Lotto 6/49 ticket,” she said. “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I just kept screaming ‘I won three freaking million dollars!’”

The $3,301,611.40 Lotto 6/49 jackpot ticket was purchased at Don’s Market on Menzies Street.

After checking her numbers, Singer calmly went back to work for the rest of the afternoon.

“It’s all been such a blur. The first thing I want to do is go on a Hawaiian vacation with my family,” added Singer.

There may be another lottery winner somewhere in Victoria, a $1 million Lotto Max prize sold in the Victoria area for the Jan. 27 draw still remains unclaimed.
