Best friends split $2m Canadian lottery win

25th August 2019 4:26am

Best friends, Susan Hook and Martha McCallum have shared tears and laughs for more than five decades but never dreamed they would find themselves sharing a $2 million Canadian lottery win.

BC 49 Lotto

The pair who are both widowed decided to "go in on" a BC/49 lottery ticket for the draw on August 17th and their six lucky numbers came up trumps.

"I was on my coffee break and decided to check the ticket," said McCallum. "I thought 'what do all the zeros mean? And I went back to work, believe it or not."

"I am not a drinker, but I said 'I need a glass of wine' [when we found out], and we cried together," said Hook. "Yesterday was the anniversary of my husband's passing, and it is quite something to know that we became millionaires on that day. I dread that day every year."

The two friends who live together went on to say that they have no intention of flashing their fortune. Instead, the money will help to fulfil lifelong travel dreams and to make their lives comfortable in the home they share.
