Shauna Smith of Fort Saskatchewan won $100,000.
According to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation, Smith won by matching six of the seven digits in her Lotto Max ticket.
Smith purchased her winning ticket from a 7-Eleven (97101A 90 Street) in Fort Saskatchewan the morning of the draw. The next morning Smith returned to the same store, where she scanned her ticket on the self-checker.
“Wow, $1,000! Then I checked again... 'no, $10,000,’" she laughed.
Still not sure what her windfall was, she sought a second opinion.
"I brought the ticket to the cashier and asked to check it. I said, 'I think it's a big one.'"
When the cashier validated her win, Smith said she jumped up and down in excitement before calling her husband to share the exciting news.
Smith has a few plans for her windfall.
"I'm going to put new shingles on our house and sit on the rest and see what we want to do with it," she said.
“It feels amazing.”
