The latest Lotto MAX millionaire bagged her jackpot on April 1, but the windfall was quite real. Tammy Manning is now CA$13-million richer thanks to the Lotto MAX ticket she purchased ahead of the March 19 regular draw.
The woman hailing from McBride is among the lottery fans that has been purchasing tickets for quite a while. Now she is Canada’s latest lottery millionaire and she has the popular lottery offering to thank for her hassle-free life. The date Match 19, 2021 will forever hold a special place in her heart, but also on her skin.
It is not uncommon that lottery winners get tattoos to commemorate the special reason why they are millionaires. Mrs. Manning got herself inked soon after she found out the good news. Her son is a tattoo artist and he agreed to permanently etch her arm with the special Lotto MAX draw date that ended up changing her life for good.
However, he did not know his mom is much richer when he first started tattooing her. But let’s go back to the day itself first. Mrs. Manning bought the winning Lotto MAX ticket part of a CA$20 Lotto MAX Quick Pick pack. She made the purchase at a Husky/Esso in McBride, meaning that the point of sale will now receive one percent of the Main prize she bagged. With this purchase, she became the only Lotto MAX fans to match all seven numbers needed.
Once the draw was over, she went to the same place, in order to check the tickets purchased with the help of the self-checker available. As soon as she scanned the ticket, the CA$13,000,000 jackpot flashed on the screen, signifying that the ticket is a winning one.
At first, Mrs. Manning could not believe her eyes and she quickly called the retailer over to check once again. Amber Bhaskar was the lottery retailer working there and the two of them know each other because of the frequent lottery ticket purchases. Now that the winner has bagged her prize, it is time for plans – paying off her house, as well as a possible purchase of a property in the Caribbean, as well as a sailboat.
