A Toronto woman has won a $60-million Lotto Max jackpot based on numbers she said were dreamed up by her husband almost 20 years ago.
OLG said 57-year-old Deng Pravatoudom is also the first-ever participant in its “virtual winner celebration” due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In the video clip, Pravatoudom could be seen receiving her big cheque virtually wearing a mask with confetti falling all around her. Pravatoudom has been playing the same numbers for 20 years, all based off her husband’s dream.
“I was ecstatically happy, I was crying at the same time. I cried so much,” she said.
“I left my temple after prayers, went to a nearby mall for some errands and to check my LOTTO MAX ticket. I won a Free Play ticket and added ENCORE. I couldn’t believe a few days later that free ticket would be worth $60 million,” she continued.OLG said Deng Pravatoudom is also the first-ever participant in its "virtual winner celebration" due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
