Barbara Fink didn’t know how much she had won when she checked her numbersonline the night of the Feb. 22 lottery draw, but she wasted no time calling her husband, Douglas, who was working out of town at the time.
“I knew we had all the numbers, but I didn’t know how many winners there were,” Barbara said, in a news release. “I called Douglas backbefore midnight and told him it was more than $ 8 million.”
It’s the third time the Finks have won the lottery. In 1989, Douglas shared in a $ 128,000 Lotto 6/49 win with four of his friends. And in 2010, the Finks both shared in a $ 100,000 Extraprize together.
The couple say theyplan to use the recent winnings to travel the world, buy a new house, and ensure their daughters and grandkids are looked after.
