Lynn Murphy of Uxbridge has that ’6/49 feeling’ after winning a LOTTO 6/49 second prize worth $69,262.50 in the April 23 LOTTO 6/49 draw.

Murphy, a 55-year-old mother of three, said she was comparing her numbers to those online and was circling the matching numbers. “I just kept circling and circling. I was in shock – I thought someone was playing a joke on me,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

She said the whole experience is humbling and she feels very emotional and grateful. “I have no plans at the moment. I’m still processing it. So, for now it’s going in the bank.”
