Couple from Hague, Sask. wins $5 million on lotto ticket
Darrell and Wendy Penner planning dream cabin renovation
A Saskatchewan couple is planning their new life after winning $5 million on a lottery ticket.
Darrell and Wendy Penner from Hague, Sask., a town about half an hour north of Saskatoon, got the big win on the Jan. 13 Lotto 6/49 draw.
The winning moment
Husband Darrell told the organization that he checked the ticket at work and didn't believe it at first, so he just went back to work for a while.
Soon enough, reality sunk in and he went to his wife's workplace to share the good news. Lots of tears and hugs soon followed.
The couple told the organization they plan to pay off their bills, help their kids and renovate their dream cabin for the family to enjoy together.
The Penners bought the winning ticket at a kiosk in the Lawson Heights Mall in Saskatoon.
