Imagine getting two big surprises in the span of less than one year! Nearly nine months ago, Erin Moore of Owen Sound found out she was expecting. “I have two wonderful daughters and this little boy is due very soon. I had surgery years ago that meant I wouldn’t have any more children so this baby is a gift.”
Erin’s second surprise came on January 13, 2017 when she won $126,968.50 with LOTTO MAX for matching six out of the seven numbers plus the bonus number on her ticket. “I will be naming my little boy ‘Max.’”
The day Erin found out about her Big Win, she used the ticket checker first. “Whatever came up on the screen, I did not see it so I took my ticket to the retailer and that’s when everything shut down. OLG called and here I am.”
An artist by trade, Erin has been busy preparing for baby number three. “The timing of this win is great! I will be sharing this win with my children by buying them bedroom furniture and taking my girls on a little shopping spree. As for me, maybe a down payment on a home or a business of my own to further showcase my art work. Winning the lottery gives me freedom – it’s awesome,” concluded Erin
The winning ticket was purchased at Winber Mart on 2nd Avenue in Owen Sound.
