The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour of Karen Henderson of Oshawa who won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $500,000 in the September 30 draw.

Henderson said she’s been a regular lottery player for 20 years. “I was in the store using the ticket checker and when Big Winner appeared, I thought it was a mistake and couldn’t be right,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I checked it three more times. I was so nervous, I just couldn’t’ believe it.”

When she shared the news with her daughter, she was in complete shock. “It’s a surreal feeling,” she said. “I plan to share this win with my family.”
