Beverly Gagnon of Morrisburg is living her dreams to the max as she won a $1 million Maxmillions prize in the December 13, 2013 Lotto Max draw.
“Normally, I buy my tickets in the afternoon but that Friday, my husband didn’t feel well so I didn’t get out,” said Beverly, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim her prize. “But I had that feeling . . . so my husband drove me to the store that evening so that I could get my tickets.”
Beverly and her husband checked her tickets online the next morning. “We were so excited and couldn’t believe that I had a winner. Then we went to the store to validate the ticket and make sure we were right.”
The retiree has been playing the lottery for the past 13 years. It is her second big win. She won $100,000 with LOTTO 6/49 in November 2012.
The couple plans to purchase a new car, finish remodeling their house and put the rest into savings.
The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Ottawa Street in Morrisburg.
