Norma and Michael, both 60, said they have been playing the lottery together for 12 years. The common-law pair said they purchase INSTANT tickets and divide them up between each other. “I played this ticket – when I saw I won big, it was unbelievable,” said Norma. “I took it to the retailer and when I saw Big Winner appear I was so excited. I was trying to contain my excitement.”

“It didn’t hit me until I saw the numbers on the ticket checker,” said Michael. “It’s the most zeroes I am ever going to see! It feels surreal.”

They plan to pay off their truck, put a down payment on a home and purchase a Harley Davidson. “This experience is hard to describe – It feels great!” said Michael.
