A Medicine Hat woman is $1 million richer after checking a lotto ticket.

Lynn Freundl won the million-dollar guaranteed prize on the March 27 LOTTO 6/49 draw.

Freundl says she bought the ticket before going to Arizona for vacation and finally checked that ticket earlier this month.

She adds she’s already handed in her retirement notice and plans to travel across Canada with her husband after buying a new trailer.

The winning ticket was bought at the Pharmasave on 8 Street NW.
