Gagandeep Luddu-Sidhu

Long wait for a cool million

Surrey resident waits eight months before claiming her lottery prize.

Surrey resident Gagandeep Luddu-Sidhu decided eight months was long enough to wait before claiming her $1-million LOTTO MAXMILLIONS jackpot.

When asked why she waited, the 29-year-old Luddu-Sidhu said, “My husband and I first had to start shopping for a new house.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Guildford Town Centre lottery retailer.

The experience of telling her husband about her $1-million MAXMILLIONS win is something Luddu-Sidhu will never forget.

“I called my husband at work as soon as I heard the music start playing on the check-a-ticket machine,” she said. “He didn’t believe me and told me he had to go and would call me back later.”

In addition to new house plans, Luddu-Sidhu says she and her husband will most likely enjoy some of the money and then invest the rest.
