A couple from Rocky Mountain House have won the lottery.
Charlene Barnes and Dwayne Herbst were sure their eyes were tricking them when they scanned their Lotto 6/49 ticket for the April 15 draw and discovered they won $154,191.70!
“We definitely thought the machine was broken,” laughed Barnes while claiming the prize. “I even said it to the cashier.”
“Then we had the cashier check it and the same amount came up on the screen,” she continued. “Well, the machine was not broken!”
Barnes and Herbst said they’re not sure what they’re going to do with their winnings just yet.
“For now, we’ll probably put the money into savings,” said Barnes. “We’ll make some decisions down the line.”
The Rocky Mountain House couple said there is one thing they know for sure: winning the lottery feels great!
“We’re very happy,” said Barnes. “It feels awesome, it’s a really good feeling!”
The couple purchased their ticket from G & B Fuels, located at 70322 Highway 11A in Clearwater County.
