Winnipeg Group Wins $500,020 LOTTO MAX Prize!
Glecie Dugay and the other members of her lottery group didn't get much sleep the night they discovered that they had won half a million dollars!
"I saw there were two big winners from Winnipeg, so I compared the winning numbers on the website to our numbers," Dugay said. "I saw that the numbers matched, then I confirmed the numbers on the mobile app."
The group split a MAXMILLIONS prize from the February 26 LOTTO MAX draw with another winner from Ontario. They exactly matched the winning numbers 18, 19, 21, 29, 39, 45 and 50. The ticket also won another $20.
"I was shaking, jumping on the bed," Dugay said about discovering the win. "I called the rest of the group around 1:30 a.m. I woke them up!"
At first, the group members weren't excited about the early morning call. "They didn't belive me!" Dugay said.
The group members plan to use their winning to pay off debt and to travel.
