Canadian lotto player hits $50 million jackpot

Lotto MaxThis year’s Mother’s Day was an extremely rewarding one for a Canadian woman. Meet Sophie Rizavas, a Toronto resident who scooped a $50 million jackpot on Mother's Day. The 63-year-old visited Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s head office in downtown Toronto to pick up her multi-million check.

Shocked by jackpot amount

Rizavas shared the news with her relatives during a dinner last Sunday. She verified the lucky ticket at a nearby shop and she was shocked by the amount. At first, Rizavas thought it was a $50,000 jackpot. However, the display of the lotto terminal demonstrated that it was actually a $50 million prize.

Family holiday

The 63-year-old Canadian plans to enjoy a holiday with her family. “It will be the first time that we go on a family holiday. I’m pleased that we can finally make it happen”, Rizavas commented. She won the staggering lotto jackpot exactly 44 years after the couple arrived in Canada from Greece.
