North Battleford resident Digna Rico has become a millionaire. Rico is one of 28 MAXAMILLION draws on Friday, Septemeber 28.
“When I saw a bunch of zeroes on the screen, I started jumping up and down and said, ‘Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you, Lord!”
Rico purchased her ticket from Fas Gas Plus in North Battleford. She decided to check her ticket at a gas bar the day after the draw. Rico thought she won $10,000.
“I had to ask the cashier if I won $1,000, $10,000, $100,000 or more,”
Rico says she is happy to win the lottery and share it with her family.
“I’m going to make sure I use the money wisely,” she said. “We will start by putting some of the money away for our retirement and for our kids’ education.”
