The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour of Roberta Davidson of Washago! She had the winning ticket for a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million from the June 18, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw.
Roberta is a regular lottery player with her favourite game being LOTTO MAX. “I purchased this ticket when the jackpot was at $70 million,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.
Roberta, a retired retail worker, checked her ticket while at the store. “I saw all the zeroes and the blood rushed from my head to my toes,” she said. “I told a couple of people but they didn’t believe me! I was so overwhelmed, I cried tears of joy.”
The mother and grandmother plans to travel when it’s safe. “I will also invest some and upgrade my vehicle,” she smiled.
