A Calgary woman who works seven days a week says she’s happy for the sense of financial security winning the Sept. 30 Western 649 draw will give her.

Geeta Alizada won the $2-million jackpot on a $3 ticket she purchased at a 7-Eleven in the 4000 block of Macleod Trail S.E.

“Like most Canadians, we’re struggling with bills, so this is a real relief,” she said in a news release.

Alizada works two different jobs but said she’s going to quit the one she works on weekends.

“In the future, we’d like to move into a bigger house, and I’ll hopefully be able to start a small business.”

Alizada said she realized she was a winner the morning after the draw.

“I sat at the kitchen table and checked the numbers on the WCLC website while my husband listened to the news.”

“It was the best feeling of my life. It’s beyond my imagination; it’s a dream come true.”
