Virden couple take home $1 Million MAXMILLIONS windfall

Tracy Peacock and David Scharff of Virden are taking home one of two MAXMILLIONS prizes
awarded in Manitoba on the April 1 LOTTO MAX draw.

The happy winners purchased their ticket from the Valleyview Co-Op Gas Bar on 114-7th avenue
south in Virden on the day of the draw. They discovered the win a couple of days later back at
the same store.

“I went to the self-checker and thought it was $10,000,” recalled Peacock, noting that she didn’t
have her glasses on. “I was very happy about it.”

Peacock gave her ticket to the cashier to validate it and discovered she’d missed a few zeroes.
“The young kid said, ‘Oh,’” she recalled with a chuckle. “I asked him if it was more than $10,000,
and he told me I won a million dollars!”

Peacock went out to the car to tell her husband to come into the store. “He didn’t want to, but I

The excited couple had just booked a trip to Hawaii prior to their windfall but look forward to
more trips in the future.

“You know we’ve been dreaming about winning,” Peacock said. “But this is better than I thought
it’d be!”

Peacock and Scharff won by matching winning MAXMILLIONS numbers - 6, 17, 22, 23, 24, 31,
and 46
