CALGARY — Turns out Emery Cressman didn't need a shot of caffeine to wake up last Sunday morning.

A $7-million Lotto 6/49 win was just the trick to shake off the morning cobwebs.

But before becoming the city's newest millionaire, the Calgary man's day didn't have the best start.

Upon awaking and going to make a cup of coffee, he discovered the canister was empty, meaning an early trip to the store was needed.

When he arrived, he was met by a long lineup.

"I thought, 'It's going to be that kind of day,'" Cressman said.

With a new can of coffee in hand, Cressman decided to check his tickets for the July 19 Lotto 6/49 draw.
