A group of Canadian hospital workers got quite the Halloween treat – a lottery ticket worth $6 million!

The four friends, who work at a hospital in British Columbia, have been playing the lottery for over a year using their birthdays and anniversaries for their numbers.

And this time, it paid off!

Heewan Choi, the “team captain”, says she first thought the ticket was worth $6,000 – until she looked closer and saw a few more zeroes.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Choi told B.C. Lottery Corporation. “I’ve always dreamed about being a millionaire. I feel like I’m in a dream.”

So what will they do with the money?

The group said they are planning to go to a nice dinner together, but other than that only one of them had an idea.

Choi’s coworker, Melanie Nolan, said she plans to donate part of her winnings to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.

In case you’re wondering, $6 million in Canadian dollars translates to about $4.5 million USD.

Have you won the lottery before?

What’s the most you’ve ever won?
