Pauline Conorquie wins the Lotto!

There’s a new Lotto winner and she didn’t have to go far to collect her cheque. Forty-five year old Belize City resident, Pauline Conorquie, is a Brodies employee, who found out this morning that the ticket she bought for Wednesday night’s draw, won her the sixty-two thousand, five hundred dollar jackpot. When we met Conorquie at the Tropical Gaming Office this afternoon, she was still in disbelief; that is until the big cheque was presented. She says that since her three sons are all grown up, most of her winnings will be saved for rainy days.

“This morning I went to work and I asked my supervisor to check the number for me. She bring a paper and she show me and I show ah back but I seh this is the number, but the free letter isn’t the same. So she seh yes, you won. I seh no, I didn’t win because the free letter is different. So ih yes you won, let us go and check. She checked and they said yes, you won and so I came here. When I came here, the lady said yes, you won and I still can’t believe it.”
