GROUP OF THREE FROM NORTH BAY 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 North Bay! They won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the September 30, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.
The group members are:
Patti Chamberlain of North Bay
Judith McIntyre of North Bay
Karin O'Reilly of North Bay
The three coworkers, who work in the financial industry, said they have been playing as a group for six years.
"I checked our ticket on the OLG App and thought, 'Oh my, that's a lot of zeroes,' I couldn't believe it. I took a screenshot and immediately sent it to Judith and Karin," said Patti.
"I thought it was a joke when I saw the text, and said, ‘Are you kidding me?’" said Judith. “When I realized it was real, I said, ‘Let’s bring out the wine!’ I was so excited.”
“I know Patti doesn’t kid around, but it was still hard to believe,” said Karin. “I felt so appreciative – like all the stars aligned that day.”
"We haven't made any plans yet. We wanted to see the cheque first – seeing is believing," Karin said. "I see a nice trip in our future. Hawaii, Paris and Las Vegas are on our bucket list," Judith concluded.
