Kelowna couple wins jackpot

by - Story: 59713


A retired Kelowna couple are doing their "happy dance" today.

Joe and Sharon Dettling matched all six numbers on the January 22 Lotto 6/49 draw to win $3.17 Million.

"I was talking to my uncle and he asked me if I had checked my ticket because he heard that someone in Vernon had won the jackpot," said Joe, 69. "Sharon and I went straight to the computer to check our numbers. We couldn't believe our eyes."

"We just stared at each other in complete shock," added Sharon, 63. "Then we did a 'happy dance' and we haven't stopped!"

The two lucky winners, who enjoy golfing together, say they don't have any plans for the money just yet.

"We need to let it sink in first," said Sharon. "But one thing's for sure – retirement just got a whole lot better!"

The Dettlings purchased their winning Quick Pick ticket at Shoppers Drug Mart in Vernon.

A second ticket sold in Quebec is also entitled to half of the $6.34 Million jackpot.
