BRAMPTON COUPLE’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH A $500,000 LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN
Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour for Edward and Alison Elliot of Brampton! They won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $500,000 in the June 7, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.
Alison and Edward, married for 29 years, have been playing the lottery since the beginning. "Alison handed me the ticket to check and heard the winning tune from the other room. She asked if we won a free play and I couldn't believe what I was seeing because I just woke up," Edward shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings. "I had to get someone else to confirm it was real, so I had my grandson come over to check it."
"It was so unbelievable I kept asking, 'Are you sure?'" Alison recalled. "This couldn't have come at a better time," Edward added.
Alison and Edward plan to pay off their mortgage and put some of their win aside for retirement. "We will use some for travel and home renovations."
"This win will have a big impact on our lives," Edward smiled.
