Orléans woman wins $3.3 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot

An Orléans woman is $3.3 million richer after winning the Au. 17 Lotto 6/49 jackpot.

Shannon Severin bought her winning ticket at the Jean Coutu outlet on St. Joseph Blvd. which she frequently visits while working at the nearby Hair Excellence salon.

During one such visit last week she checked her ticket using the ticket checker. At first she thought she had won $3,000. When she realized she actually won the grand prize she was stunned.

“I initially thought I won $3,000," says Severin. "When I realized the true amount, I was shocked. I couldn’t breathe! It was so surreal.”

Severin plans to spend her winnings on her family startng with a long vacation.

The $3.3 million is the largest jackpot the Jean Coutu outlet has ever sold. The previous biggest prize was a $5,000 scratch and win ticket.
