Couple wins enormous Lotto Max jackpot after an ice cream run to the supermarket!
Deanna Bergeron had eaten her new fiancé’s last ice cream bar, and so she offered to run to the closest market to buy him some more. Little did she know that an impulse purchase of two Lotto Max tickets would land them such a big jackpot!
The couple, who reside in Orillia, Ontario had just gotten engaged in June, are still in shock of the news, and processing such a big win. “This is so overwhelming, we are still in a daze”, said Deanna, a personal trainer. After purchasing two tickets for the September 5th draw, she got a phone call from her mother, telling her someone in Orillia had won the CAD $50 million jackpot. Once Deanna checked her tickets and saw she had the winning numbers, she texted her fiancé Jeff so he can check them as well.
Still reeling from the emotional rollercoaster, the couple plan on taking a vacation in Hawaii, while trying to figure out how to spend the rest of their winnings. The numbers they won with were 3, 8, 11, 20, 28, 36 and 38, with a bonus number of 26. If you think you have the winning numbers in your back pocket, why not buy US Powerball tickets online, where the jackpot is up to an unprecedented $171 million!
