Majella Russell just meant to pick up some treats for her grandchildren at a local convenience store, but she went home with a huge treat of her own.
The Red Deer woman discovered she won $100,000 on the September 30 EXTRA draw.
“I went to the store to grab some stuff for my grandkids and thought I would check my ticket,” she said. “I had no idea that I had a winner. I couldn’t believe it!”
The happy winner said she plans to use her winnings to pay down her mortgage.
“We just built a new home, so this is really perfect timing!”
Russell purchased her winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket at Present Trends Gift Shop in the Red Deer Regional Hospital, located at 3942 50A Avenue.
