A local grandmother is a million dollars richer after claiming the March 7th Lotto Max Maxmillions prize.

Louise Lavigne of Windsor says her son was in shock when he realized she had a winning ticket.

“We were so excited – just making fools of ourselves! It was a very funny moment,” says Lavigne. “When my son realized I had a winning ticket, he started screaming in shock, saying, ‘This is impossible.'”

Lavigne, whose previous highest lottery win was $50 on an instant Crossword ticket, says she plans to take some time before making drastic changes in her life but noted it would be exciting to purchase a new house, car and invest in her grandchildren.

The winning ticket was purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore (Loblaws) on Dougall.

According to the OLG, Maxmillions prizes are additional $1 million prizes that are drawn when the Lotto Max Jackpot reaches $50 million.
