Forgotten Ticket, a winner

Sedgewick woman finds forgotten ticket in her wallet worth $100,000.

Krista Castagna was in for a pleasant surprise when she finally got around to cleaning out her wallet.

Castagna discovered a forgotten lottery ticket – and won $100,000 in the EXTRA she added to a LOTTO MAX ticket for a draw back in June.

Castagna’s winning ticket matched the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number for the June 28 LOTTO MAX draw – 5266577.

After purchasing her ticket in Edmonton on June 27, Castagna put her ticket in her wallet and forgot about it for several months.

When she brought her ticket into the store on Nov. 7 and scanned it on the self-checker, she was shocked.

“I was in disbelief,” she said.

The happy winner said she plans to put her windfall towards her mortgage.

“It’s a wonderful gift. I’m so grateful,” she added.
