Delta woman wins $1M from ticket bought at Surrey Safeway

"It hasn't completely sunk in yet," admitted the Delta grandmother

Meet Delta's newest millionaire

DELTA — A Delta woman became a millionaire after purchasing a winning Lotto 6/49 ticket from a Surrey Safeway.

Lynn Cannell said “all she could see was zeros” while the machine played the winning song.

A week before, Cannell thought she’d won big with her $168 win, but she’s sure happy she was wrong.

A ticket purchased at the Safeway on 120th Street would prove to make her far richer.

“It hasn’t completely sunk in yet,” Cannell admitted.

She said her winnings will ensure her family is taken care of.

“Seeing my daughters enjoy the riches will be my joy,” said Cannell.

“My granddaughter took the first $30 out of my million when she ordered a pizza for the family to celebrate.”
