BRAMPTON RESIDENT’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH A $1 MILLION LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN
Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour of Shanmugalingam Kanagaratnam of Brampton! He won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the October 21, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.
Shanmugalingam, a 56-year-old father of two, said he is a weekly lottery player, and his favourite games are LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49. “When I scanned my ticket the day after the draw, I could have sworn I saw a $500,000 win, and I was very happy about that,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
“When I went to the store to have the ticket validated and I saw $1 million, I was shocked! My son was with me, and we were both so excited. We started talking about all the things we could do with this money,” he smiled.
He plans to use this money to purchase a home for his family. “I am so excited. I can’t wait to count all the zeroes on this cheque! My future will be much brighter now,” Shanmugalingam concluded.
