Congratulations Jessica and Michael!


Kamloops couple in shock after $500,000 LOTTO MAX win.

Jessica Sandry is glad she reminded her boyfriend, Michael Ellis, to buy a LOTTO MAX ticket when he passed through Kelowna for work. The reminder paid off to the tune of $500,000 in the March 18, 2016 LOTTO MAX draw. The couple shares their Maxmillion prize with one other winning ticket.

Sandry and Ellis only recently started playing the lottery and they can't believe they have already won big.

"I'm shocked we won because this is only the tenth ticket I have ever bought," exclaimed Ellis.

As for how they will spend their winnings, the Kamloops couple is focused on investing in their family's future.

"We don't plan on buying anything right now," smiled Sandry. "We're going to pay off our mortgage and invest some of the money."

The winning ticket was purchased at the Kelowna Husky Market.
