An Okotoks woman won a windfall from playing the Extra in late April.

Catherine Meyer bought her Lotto 6/49 ticket at a Black Diamond Esso and won the April 27 Extra draw, landing her a cool $100,000.

She was in a bit of shock at first.

"I just kept checking my ticket over and over again to make sure I wasn't seeing things."

She checked the ticket 15 times just to make sure.

Meyer already has a good idea of what she'll be doing with her winnings.

"It feels wonderful; I will be helping my kids then banking the rest."
