A couple from Mount Pearl is now $1 million richer thanks to a recent LOTTO 6/49 draw.
Mary Picco learned by email that she had won a big prize, having purchased her winning ticket through the Atlantic Lottery website.
Mary and her husband Wayne Picco were presented with a large cheque today at Atlantic Lottery's office in St. John's.
Mary does not expect the money will change their life to any great extent. There are some home renovations the couple expects to complete, and Wayne Picco suggested they may take a few trips to warmer climates.
The couple also plans to share their newfound wealth with family.
