A GROUP OF THREE FROM THE GTA ARE CELEBRATING A $1 MILLION LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN
Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour for a group of three from the Greater Toronto Area! They won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the October 11, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.
The group members are:
Andre Nicholson of Concord
Aileen Mendoza of Toronto
Ponrose (Rose) Antonipillai of Woodbridge
The group of three Costco coworkers said they take turns purchasing their group’s ticket. Andre was just coming off night shift when he checked their ticket using the OLG App and couldn't believe what he saw. “I saw $1 million but couldn’t believe it, and scanned it several times,” he said. “Then Rose and Aileen scanned it to see for themselves.”
"This is a blessing," Andre said. "We were speechless," Rose added. Aileen said her prayers have been answered.
The group members each have their own plans for their portion of winnings. Aileen plans to pay some bills, Rose will help her children and Andre will help others and give back.
