A Blackfalds couple is happy after a little extra money has been added to their bank accounts.
Arthur and Toja Geissler won $100,000 in the Feb. 11 EXTRA draw, which they purchased alongside their Western 6/49 ticket.
“I took our tickets to the store and scanned them on the ticket checker,” said Tonja. “We had no idea we had won. I must have scanned this ticket at least six times.”
While Tonja was visibly excited, crying and shaking according to Arthur, he was calm by comparison.
They plan to pay off their mortgage with their winnings.
The tickets were purchased at the Lacombe Husky on Hwy 2A.
