KAMLOOPS — A woman from Tumbler Ridge has won $10 million after buying a winning Lotto 6/49 ticket.

Vivienne Mills purchased the winning ticket on PlayNow.com for the April 3, 2019 draw.

The longtime Tumbler Ridge resident plans to share her winnings with her two children and four grandchildren.

"I want to set the kids and the grandkids up right away," says Mills. "We're looking forward to paying off our grandkids' education, their student loans and helping them buy a house."

What does she plan to buy herself?

"Well, I'd like to buy a new car," she said. "Right now we have a truck, and it'd sure be nice to have a smaller car that's easier to get into parking spots."
