Scanning a bunch of tickets all at once, one St. Catharine woman struck gold on the third ticket she scanned.

Margaret “Mag” Matthews matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the November 12 LOTTO MAX draw to win $1 million.

Mag said, “My husband heard me running through the house, and thought I won $1,000 at first. He was shocked!”

She plans to pay off her mortgage, update her kitchen and invest. “It feels surreal – absolutely amazing!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Waypoint on Niagara Street in Welland.
