She had just gotten groceries on her way home from work when Delta’s Lisa-Marie Draganiuk decided to check her lottery ticket.
The numbers that came up sent her into a delirium. In shock, she immediately called her husband. Then people began to gather around, everyone realizing she was not only a winner – she was a big winner.
Draganiuk’s June 5 Lotto Max ticket was one of four winners in the $50-million draw – leaving her with a $12.5 million cut.
The 33-year-old dental hygienist said the prize changes everything for her and her family.
“We can live the life we aspire to live and raise our family comfortably,” she said.
She was most looking forward to telling her mom about the windfall and planned to pick her up from work – hopefully for the last time.
“She is a single mom and has done so much for me and I’m really looking forward to returning the favour,” said Draganiuk.
She said her family will soon begin house hunting. They had been wanting to move but were unsure how they’d come up with enough money for a down payment.
Now, she says, the possibilities are endless.
