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 Karamjit Hansra of Brampton! She won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the May 17, 2024 LOTTO MAX draw.

Karamjit, who works in the automotive industry, is an occasional lottery player who likes to pick up a LOTTO MAX ticket when the jackpot is high. “It was early Saturday morning when I scanned the ticket on the OLG app. I didn’t really understand what was happening,” she shared while picking up her windfall at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “I saw the words ‘Big Winner’ and went to show my family. I was too surprised to believe it! I had my husband check the ticket on his app too. Even then, we had to count the zeros to be sure,” she laughed.

“It was surreal. My cheeks hurt from the big smile I have! My heart is filled with happiness,” she smiled.

Karamjit plans to invest her winnings and allow it to grow before making any decisions.
