Chatham Lotto Winner Is Finally Getting Her Hair DoneFebruary 28, 2018 12:30pm
It didn’t take long for a Chatham woman to pick up her lotto winnings.
Christy Redding has picked up her $500,000 MAXMILLIONS win in Friday’s LOTTO MAX draw.
“I usually play LOTTO 6/49 and PICK 3,” Christy told lottery officials at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “But my boyfriend recently had a dream that I won the lottery so I decided to buy a LOTTO MAX ticket as well.”
Christy remembered to check her ticket a few days after the draw.
“When I handed it to the retailer, the lottery machine froze,” Christy explained. “My stomach dropped when I realized I won $500,000 – I haven’t slept since!”
Christy, a mother of one, plans on using her winnings to buy a wheelchair accessible home as well as a wheelchair for her granddaughter.
“I’ll also finally get my hair done,” she laughed.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ann’s Convenience & Video on St. Clair St. in Chatham.
