TORONTO: A young Indo-Canadian couple living in Brampton near here have hit the jackpot by winning nearly $18.8 million.

Jaspreet and her husband Gurbhej Sran, who migrated to Canada from India four years ago, won the Lotto 649 with a free-play ticket on March 22. This free-pass ticket won the couple  $18,799,377.90 jackpot from the March 22 LOTTO 6/49 draw.

Gurbhej is a truck driver and Jaspreet is studying to become an accountant.

Since the couple rarely play lottery, they went to the lottery rpize centre in Toronto to check if their ticket had won any prize.

Gurbhej said, “I had a feeling we should go to the store and check our ticket. The self-checker said ‘Big Winner, see retailer,’ so we thought maybe we’d won $10,000. We were so surprised to find out it was much, much more!”

The lucky couple welcomed their first baby just a week ago.

They said they want to buy a home first and bring their parents to Canada.

Gurbhej said he would buy his own truck and continue with trucking.

What really touch me is your caring toward your parents to share with them your good fortune. God works in mysterious ways and hope that His Blessing to you and your family won’t change your outlook in life. Good luck.

  3. I am happy for you, God Blessings be on you,you are doing something right that will be on your generation my years after you are gone. You are giving your blessings by blessings others I am a trucker too, it will be nice to own my own truck too. I wish you all the best God bless you, and please be safe out there on the road.

  6. First off may God bless you and your family. I don’t mean any disrespect but I feel like this is a scam and if it isn’t well I still don’t believe that someone will just give away money to people they never met. So with that being said I wish you luck but the only way i’ll believe it is when a official check (not FAKE)is in my hand and I know it can be cashed with no problems.

  7. It is really fantastic moment if this news is genuine. If I got the chance really I settle all my dues and live freely. But really I do not know how far this news is real. Anyhow God bless you.

  8. Congrats on your win and your new born baby. If its for real may God grant u all your heart desires, but if you are scam and deceiving people, God will grant you pain and sufering all your days.Receive it for what ever you are. Amen

  9. Dear Gurbhej & Jaspreet,
    Best of Luck for ur Baby who open eyes with lot of moneys by which u could bought joy and happiness.
    My heartiest suggestion to both of you: To console ur love to ur parents & nation just come back and become an Enterprenure in Punjab, create jobs and searve parents and our great nation. Open here any modern way of learning by using this money by helping poor and wise students and help to stop the migration.

      vivek,India

  22. Dear people, please open your eyes and think more clearly. There is about 30 people received this email about 1 million dollars.This couple
    probably won that money but somebody using up this information for another purpose and this is definitely scam. I would not trust ( how you get on this list)

  23. congrats on your winning & new arrival. best of luck
    hope this is not another scam……. people should stop scamming others

    IF NOT A SCAM AGAIN CONGRATS

  24. You had sent me an email about giving a million to three people and I was chosen as one of those recipients. I think you are pretty lucky and wish both of you all the luck in the world. I am sure you will do what is best for you. I am interested in knowing more about the grant. I am sure I can use whatever to help my folks and some others in need.

    • I would appreciate if I was chosen to be blessed with a Million Dollars. I would bless other people especially my family. I have 5 daughters. So we would all appreciate being selected. God be with in whatever or whom ever you choose to bless.

  25. I received a email in your name , just i want to know that is genuine or not . details below:

    our Names are Gurbhej and Jaspreet Sran who migrated to Canada from India four years ago.we are giving out cash grant of $1 Million Dollars each to (3)Lucky international recipients worldwide to show God our appreciation.You received this message because you have be listed as one of the (3)lucky Individual selected.for more about the winnings you may visit our web page by clicking the link( http://newseastwest.com/punjab-couple-wins-18-million-lottery-in-canada/)

  26. Today I received an email from you mentioning that Iam the one among three individuals to receive $1million cash grant from your lottery winnings. I think this is not another scam. Anyway thanks for your grant and my wishes for your grand win.

  27. I received your email. It would be a blessing for my family to receive this Grant. My husband has suffered many illnesses after a long drawn out surgery. This has left us in such a financial difficulty. He as well has lost his income and I work 2 part-time jobs trying to constantly catch up our debts. We have two wonderful children to whom also live with us and work part-time positions. I would use this money to pay off all my debts, buy us a vehicle that would not be continuously in the garage, and play it forward to some one else that is in need as well.

  28. Congratulations to you and your family. I am not surprise about receiving your mail stating that my email won a lucky three individuals donation or whatever. How fast the scammers used it. If its true as per your wishes its ok even it not its no wonder, this is the internet world.

  29. Is this couple really giving out the lottery ??

    I got this email from “Gurbhej Jaspreet Sran ”

  30. I hope you are for real. I sure could use a gift like this as I am retired and my wife and I do not have enough money to live very long on.

  31. Good luck with your winnings. Thank you for including me with your gift. A gift like this will help my wife “of 60 years” and I to live out our lives a lot better as our money well soon be gone. I have provided information below. Duane

  32. When will we receive more information about the 3 lucky international winners? I was informed that I was listed as one of the 3 lucky international individuals selected.

    Thank you. Hope you both and the baby, God bless you.
    I wish if Allah grant me the blessing, hope I am from Malaysia, selected among the 3 luckier person to receive your thankful giving. I need it to pay my debt to 2 loan sharks that have nearly ruined my life and my family. The balance more than Canadian Dollars 100,000 after that I will donate to charity bodies and the needy.
    Thank you again.

    I only contact you, because God gave me the gift of psychic dreams from time to time. In the dream, I was holding a check with one million dollars in my hand. It was quite some time ago. Time is the most elusive factor in dreams. I assumed, if it is meant for me, it can come from different sources – 1. we buy lottery tickets often. 2. unknown source, definitely not inherited. I write poetry. Some of it on facebook. 3. from my writing. I came to this country after WWII from Germany by myself as a legal immigrant. I could write the most beautiful poem about you and praise God at the same…See More

    I have received emails from you says that I have selected between 3 lucky candidates to get a contribution from you. I am in doubt whether it is news that is true or it’s just an illusion. But if it’s true then it is something that is amazing because there are still more people watch out for noble who really want to help others regardless of race in the world. Anyway, congratulations to you. May God bless you all.
