Saskatchewan Couple Win $40 Million Lottery
Saskatchewan couple win $40 million lottery. A Saskatchewan couple from the village of Paradise Hill won $40 million in a recent lottery draw. John and Darlene Kinzel took the top prize from a Lotto Max draw one week ago.
On Friday they were presented to news media and said they planned to stay in Paradise Hill, a village of about 485 people roughly 250 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
The retired couple moved to Paradise Hill three years ago.
They say they plan to spend their winnings on travel, building a new home and helping family members.
According to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, the Kinzels’ win marks a new record for a lottery prize awarded in Saskatchewan.
The previous record was $25 million awarded to a couple from northern Saskatchewan in 2010.
