Darcy discovered their win when she went to the store to check her lottery tickets, as she does each Wednesday. She scanned them at the ticket checker first. When she saw the amount, she handed her ticket to the clerk to check saying, “I think I’ve some money.”
Once the retailer verified the win, Darcy said “Oh my god, we’ve won.”
The couple’s ticket had exactly matched the last 6 numbers drawn on the EXTRA game.
“This is very exciting,”’ said Michael.
