Chatham woman wins $500,000 in lottery
A Chatham resident has won $500,000 with Lotto Max.
According to OLG, Christy Redding won $500,000 with MAXMILLIONS in the February 23rd draw.
“I usually play LOTTO 6/49 and PICK 3,” Christy shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.”But my boyfriend
recently had a dream that I won the lottery so I decided to buy a LOTTO
MAX ticket as well.”
A few days after the draw, Christy remembered she had a ticket to check.
“When I handed it to the retailer, the lottery machine froze,” Christy explained.”My stomach dropped when I realized I won $500,000 – I haven’t slept since!”
Christy, a mother of one, plans on using her winnings to purchase a wheelchair accessible home as well as a wheelchair for her granddaughter.
“I’ll also finally get my hair done,” she laughed.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ann’s Convenience & Video on St.Clair Street in Chatham.
Since its launch in September 2009, Ontario LOTTO MAX players have won over $4.1 billion in prizes, including 55 jackpot wins and 392 winning
MAXMILLIONS tickets from all across the province.
