WHITBY RESIDENT’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH $921,610 LOTTO MAX WIN
Toronto, ON – Adam Parks of Whitby has $921,610.50 to put toward his dreams after winning a LOTTO MAX second prize in the March 29, 2022 draw.
Adam, a 45-year-old father, said he has been playing the lottery for about 25 years and his favourite games are LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49.
While getting ready for work one morning, Adam checked his ticket and discovered his win. “I saw I had six numbers and the bonus, and I started screaming – I was so excited!” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
He said his screams woke up his daughter. “I had to tell her everything was okay and when I told her about my win she said, ‘That’s amazing’ and went back to sleep,” he laughed.
Adam said the whole experience was overwhelming. “I had to let it soak in. I literally screamed ‘We just won the lottery!’ at the top of my lungs. It’s unreal. A total shock.”
For Adam, this win means his daughter’s university is paid for. “The rest will go towards a house,” he concluded.
