The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. (OLG) announced that Zhe Wang is the lucky — very, very lucky — owner of a ticket that just netted her a pretty nifty $64 million. The ticket is from the Oct. 17 Lotto 649 draw and was purchased at a Sauga Petro-Canada gas station.

According to the Canadian Press, OLG has said Wang’s momentous prize is the largest jackpot won by a player with a single ticket in Canadian history. Previously, a $63.4 million Lotto 649 jackpot was won in 2013 and shared among four winning ticket holders.

Congrats to Ms. Wang!
