A husband and wife from Brampton, in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada, have won a huge $1 million lottery prize on the Lotto Max national game, and it was an excellent late birthday present.
Trevor Gordon had just celebrated his 65th birthday when he found out he’d won $1 million together with his wife of 31 years, Rosemarie Allen-Gordon. Some time ago a Brampton woman who won $1 million on the Lotto Max planned to take a trip to the Rockies, and now our most recent winner told lottery officials that the $1 million Lotto Max Millions win was the best birthday present he could ever have received, and not only was it his birthday, he had also recently retired. A lottery player from California said her win was the perfect birthday present after taking home over $750,000 thanks to the Powerball.
The pair are parents to three daughters and nine grandchildren who are aged between 7 months and 18 years, meaning that their big win will certainly become a part of their family’s futures. They hope to be able to use it to pay off their daughters’ student loans, as well as start a tuition fund for their grandchildren. A student from Leicester in England who won £70,000 on a National Lottery scratch card was delighted to be able to pay off all of her student debts before even graduating after her big win.
But it’s not only about the family, as the couple also hope to take a vacation to Africa, something they have been dreaming about for years. A national lottery scratch card winner from Shropshire in England was off on a dream vacation after winning £300,000.
“All of our dreams have now come true. Winning the lottery means financial freedom and the opportunity to retire comfortably,” Mr Gordon told Lottery officials in Toronto. One of the most interesting lottery stories from Brampton came from a Lotto Max winner who lost his $50 million ticket for two months, but did end in a happy ending.
The Gordon’s won their big jackpot on February 3rd, after a Lotto Max drawing worth $60 million took place, but no ticket won the jackpot. Instead, one ticket from Brampton and another from nearby Newmarket both took home $1 million prizes, one of which was Mr and Mrs Gordon’s big ticket. A $394,459.40 prize was also won with a ticket told in Mississauga, another city in the Greater Toronto Area.
