New Brunswick has a brand new millionaire.
Joanne Higginson of Stanley which is just north of Fredericton has won $1 million on the May 12 Atlantic 49 draw.
Higginson says on the day she found out she won she went in to cash in her lottery tickets hoping to get enough money to buy cream for her coffee.
“So I went to the store, I checked my ticket, and it was too big [for] the retailer to give to me,” says Higginson.
As it turns out, her second ticket won $12 so she ended up getting the cream too.
Higginson plans on investing the money, saying that she still wants to work, adding she feels like this win will help set her up for the future.
