After a lot of bad news this week—–we can finally bring you some great news—-as we now know who the winners of that 60-million dollar Lotto Max jackpot are.
Brett McCoy and Robin Walker are from the hamlet of Peers.
Robin says they had gone into Peers to pick up feed for their animals and other goodies–when she decided to check their tickets at the McLeod Trading Post:
“It was kinda crazy—Brett stayed in the truck with our daughter—so he handed me his tickets and told me to check them. I checked the first one and it was nothing—so I threw it in the garbage. I checked the second and it came up with all these numbers—so I thought–well that cant be right—so I checked the other one first–and then went back to that one—and thats when I was like–oh my gosh…. So I stuck my head out the door and said Brett–get in here—we won 60-thousand dollars!!!
And thats when the clerk said—-Robin—you need to count the zeros.
And it still doesnt seem real….”
As for what they’re planning to do with the money—they’re going to take some time to think about it–but do say their kids have some ideas—with the one boy thinking about a steer that he could ride.
