Lotto Max Winner From BC Is Treating Herself To The Shopping Trip Of A Lifetime

A woman in B.C. is helping out her family and going on a shopping spree after winning $500,000 in a Lotto Max draw.

Johanna Rossetto, from Nanaimo, played the Extra option on the Lotto Max draw from October 29.

She said she checked the ticket at home first before taking it to her local grocery store to get confirmation of her big win.

“I was right here in the living room,” said Rossetto. She shared the news with her husband first after realizing that they had a lump sum of money heading their way.

"Then we shared the news that I won with our kids, my sisters and friends. They were all very excited for me," she added.

Rossetto said she is putting some of her winnings towards a huge shopping trip.

She said: "I’ve been thinking about a trip and a new wardrobe, helping out the family and of course a new car,” she said.

Lottery winners in B.C. won an incredible $891 million in 2021, according to the B.C. Lottery Corporation.

They said that 102 million winning lottery tickets were given out, a record-breaking number, and the province's biggest winner was Christine Lauzon, from Burnaby, who won $70 million on a Lotto Max draw in September, even though she only went to the shop to buy peanuts.

Most recently, a couple from Powell River decided to give their restaurant staff a bonus for the holidays after they also won $500,000 on a Lotto Max draw.
