A pair of carnival workers are ditching their trailer, buying a house, going on vacation and making all their dreams come true after winning $7-million on the lottery!
Late Sunday evenng Richard Bourgeois and Michelle Wishard found out that all six their luck lotto numbers had matching the winning lotto numbers in the weekend’s Lotto 6/49 draw.
The ecstatic couple couldn’t believe their eyes when they realised that they had in fact won the top jackpot prize, with Richard exclaiming, “'holy **** we got all six numbers. I'm still shocked." Both Richard and Michelle were beaming from ear to ear while speaking to news reporters about their lottery win.
Richard, 48 and Michelle 43, work for West Coast Amusements, Western Canada's largest traveling midway operation. For as long as they can remember, they have been living in a travel trailer in Langley.
"Just something small -- don't have to be a half a million dollars, even a double-wide trailer that's brand new is good enough for me," said Richard.
Richard said that one of their first priorities is to look for a "cheap" piece of land somewhere rural, perhaps Hope or Aldergove, and a house. He said the house didn’t have to be anything extravagant, as long as they are finally out of their trailer. Enough is enough and they will be happy to stop working indefinitely.
The lottery winners said that they also have plans to help their families as soon as they have spoken to a financial advisor so they "don't get ripped off."
They're also planning a nice holiday, though the destination is still in the air. The pair may visit Newfoundland, the Yukon, or maybe even Cuba.
After struggling for many years in what he calls "a hard life," Bourgeois says he's going to quit his job and retire early.
"I don't have to worry about anything the rest of my life," he said. "I'm going to relax."
