Saskatchewan – the Luckiest Place in Canada?
Kindersley, Saskatchewan is a small town in one of Canada’s smallest provinces, but it may just be the luckiest! In the last three months, 3 lottery winners have cashed in big. On February 18, David Renwick scored $72,000 from a ticket he purchased at the local 7 Eleven. Less than a month later on March 6, Patricia Desjarlais won $1 million dollars on a ticket bought at a bar. And to top off the winning streak, Curtis Chester got $1 million richer thanks to a ticket he purchased at a grocery store. Kevin van Egdom, spokesman for the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, had this to say about the recent winners, “We’ve had quite a streak of luck in Kindersley for a town of about 5,000 people. Obviously for such a small place we don’t see winners of this magnitude that close together”.
