A visit to Wahta Station paid off big time recently for Maria Sahanatien of Bala.
Maria, 66, says she plays the lottery often and prefers INSTANT tickets.
“I expected maybe a $5 win – nothing this big,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I discovered my win while at home – I was very surprised when I counted the zeroes!”
Maria told her husband about her big win first.
“He couldn’t believe it,” she said. “We jumped and danced and hugged each other.”
Maria is building a garage with her winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased at The Wahta Station on Muskoka Road in Bala.
