Edmonton woman couldn’t believe $1-million lottery win

An Edmonton woman had a tough time believing she is Alberta’s newest millionaire when she checked her lottery ticket earlier this year.

“I really just didn’t believe it,” said Sheila Cleasby, who checked her Lotto 649 ticket at a self-checker in May. “I kept looking at the screen thinking there was no way that it actually said one million dollars.”

Cleasby said the reality finally sunk in after scanning the ticket for the fourth time but still didn’t know exactly what to do so she waited to make her claim until now.

“I didn’t know how to act,” she said. “I walked out of the store and stood in the street trying not to yell out that I won a million dollars!”

She picked up her husband from the airport later that day and gave him the good news; he reacted in a similar fashion.

“He couldn’t believe it,” she said.

“He kept looking at me asking, ‘Is this a joke?'” she said. “I would say ‘No!’ and he would just look at me and say, ‘If this is a joke it isn’t funny!'”
