Esterhazy Woman Wins $100-Thousand on a Western 649 EXTRA Draw

An Esterhazy woman is happy to have a financial cushion for the future after discovering she had a winning Western 649 ticket.
Diane Lucas won $100-thousand on the August 24th EXTRA draw, and had bought the ticket at a store in Esterhazy.
“I was scanning tickets on the Mobile app,” she said in a news release. “I got to this ticket and said to my husband, ‘We won.’ He looked at me and said, ‘Yeah, right.’”

“We went back and forth like that a few times; finally, I scanned the ticket again and told him to look,” she continued. “We both just sat there, staring at each other. We were too shocked to feel much.”

Lucas says she then went to the store to have it scanned a third time to confirm she did in fact win.
While a family trip is a possibility in the future, Lucas says there is no immediate plans to spend the winnings.
