'It’s very nice': Sask. woman wins $100K playing Lotto 6-49

A woman from Rosthern, Saskatchewan has won $100,000 on a Lotto 6-49 ticket.

Roth said she is still trying to decide what to do with the money.

“It’s so hard to wrap my head around,” she said. “I’m thinking, ‘Do we pay things off? Do we save it?’ So many things we can do.”

The ticket was purchased at the Co-op Rosthern C-Store. Top Stories
