'I couldn't sleep': Sask. couple celebrates $100,000 lotto win
For two weeks, a Meadow Lake couple had no idea they were in possession of a lottery ticket worth $100,000.
Donald McCallum and Darlene Matchee purchased a Lotto Max ticket at the Meadow Lake Co-op on April 22, according to a Western Canada Lottery Corporation news release.
They didn't check it until two weeks later when they returned to the Co-op.
After the cashier scanned the ticket, they heard the telltale noise that indicates a winning ticket — or at least one of them did.
"Donald wasn't paying attention," Matchee said in the news release.
“He had to ask if we won."
At first, McCallum thought they had won $10,000, but the cashier set him straight.
"I never thought I would win that amount. I've never seen that much money in my life. After that, I couldn't sleep." McCallum said.
The couple won by matching the last six digits of the winning Extra number in the April 22 draw — 2418773.

Saskatoon Police Service says there is no truth to a claim circulating on social media alleging police wrongdoing and there is evidence to prove it.
A 55-year-old man was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver at a Saskatoon hospital, according to his daughter.
