LIFE IS GRAND: MISSISSAUGA MOTHER WINS $1,000 A DAY FOR LIFE WITH DAILY GRAND

TORONTO, ON – The future looks grand for Mai Ee Jiang of Mississauga! Mai matched five numbers plus the Grand Number to win the top prize of $1,000 a day for life with DAILY GRAND in the September 21, 2020 draw. Mai opted for the lump sum prize of $7 million.

An occasional lottery player, Mai said she always chooses Quick Pick when purchasing her tickets. “My husband came home with a printout of winning numbers after checking his tickets,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I was comparing the winning number with mine and couldn’t believe my eyes!”

The 54-year-old stay-at-home mom said she pulled out her phone right away and used the OLG Lottery App to double-check the ticket. "My husband and I were so happy – we just started laughing. I think he was more excited than I was!”

Mai’s dream is to travel when it’s possible again, but her priority is to help family. “I will help my little sister who has been so kind to look after our father.”

"This is still hard to believe! It's a dream come true. The timing couldn’t have been any better," Mai concluded.
