Canadian duo scoops $50 million in Lotto Max
Two lotto players from Hawkesbury, Hawkesbury have scooped a $50 million jackpot. At first they thought they had won 'only' $50,000. After checking the results again, the Canadian couple realized they had won $50 million. "It felt like my heart was going crazy after checking the results for the first time. When I realized it was much more, I couldn't even stand up straight.," JoAnn Champagne commented.

The Champagnes have bought a new house and they will give money to a Hawkesbury-based hospital and food bank. In addition, JoAnn and Gaetan have provided financial support to their son who owns a restaurant. Gaetan also treated himself to a Lincoln MKZ. They claimed their life-changing jackpot
yesterday, eight weeks after the memorable drawing of December 30.
