Lotto Max winner is “living the dream!”

$309,346.20

Congratulations Jin!


Jin S. of British Columbia experienced a lot of firsts with Lotto Max's January 18th draw. It was the first time that he had purchased a Lotto Max ticket online through PlayNow.com and it was the first time that he matched six of seven numbers and the Lotto Max Extra to win $309,346.20!

As a big baseball and soccer fan, Jin usually uses PlayNow.com for sports betting, and was completing his bets when he decided to use his accounts remaining balance to purchase a Lotto Max ticket, “this was my first time [buying Lotto on PlayNow.com]” as he usually picks up his tickets from the grocery store.

The weekend following January 18th, Jin began the morning by checking his emails. He noticed a win notification from PlayNow but didn’t look into it since he, “thought it was just a freeplay.” It wasn’t until the day after when he saw the balance in his account and “found out [he had] won Lotto Max’s secondary prize.” Jin shared the news with his parents right away, “we were jumping back and forth and hugging each other!”

“My dream is to tour the world,” but for now, he plans on taking a short vacation to Las Vegas. This experience has been surreal for Jin “I still can’t believe it,” he feels like he’s “living the dream. [This win is] gonna make my life easier and better.” And as for playing the lottery on PlayNow.com, he excitedly told us, “I already bought my ticket [for the next Lotto Max draw]!”

Congratulations Jin, wishing you the best!
