North Battleford resident wins $1 million on LOTTO MAX

Digna Rico started her weekend with a big surprise! The North Battleford resident won $1,000,000 on one of the 28 MAXMILLIONS draws on Friday, September 28.

Rico went to the gas bar the morning after the draw and decided to check her LOTTO MAX ticket.

“When I saw a bunch of zeroes on the screen, I started jumping up and down and said, ‘Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you, Lord!”

At first, the lucky winner thought she had won $10,000; she couldn’t believe it when she discovered she had actually won a million dollars.

“I had to ask the cashier if I won $1,000, $10,000, $100,000 or more,” she said. “When they told me it was $1 million, I just clapped my hands – I was so excited!”

Rico has a few ideas for her winnings, starting with putting some of the money away.

“I’m going to make sure I use the money wisely,” she said. “We will start by putting some of the money away for our retirement and for our kids’ education.”

Winning the lottery is a dream come true in more ways than one for Rico; the happy winner said she is now able to fulfill one of her long-time goals.

“I always hoped I would win a lottery so I could help my family, and I’m going to share this win with them,” she said.
“I am so happy to be able to do this,” she continued. “It is a dream come true.”

Rico purchased her winning LOTTO MAX ticket at Fas Gas Plus, located at 391 Railway Avenue East in North Battleford. Her winning numbers were 19, 23, 35, 40, 41, 47 and 48.
