Roberta Davidson won a Maxmillions prize

A regular lottery player from Washago hit it big.

Roberta Davidson had the winning ticket for a Maxmillions prize worth $1 milllion from the June 17, 2021 Lotto Max draw.

“I purchased this ticket when the jackpot was $70 million,” she said while at the OLG prize centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.

Roberta, a retired retail worker, checked her ticket while at the store.

“I saw all the zeroes and the blood rushed from my head to my toes,” she said. “I told a couple of people but they didn’t believe me! I was so overwhelmed, I cried tears of joy.”

The mother and grandmother plans to travel when it’s safe.

“I will also invest some and upgrade my vehicle,” she smiled.

The winning ticket was purchased at Rama Country Market and Gas Bar on Yellowhead Trail in Rama.
