Christmas day win of $1 million for Penticton couple

Penticton couple won a $1 million Maxmillion prize on the Dec. 25 Lotto Max draw.

Lindsay Slobodzian and Grzegroz Slobodzian received the best Christmas gift when they discovered they won a $1 million Maxmillion prize on the Dec. 25 Lotto Max draw. The couple learned they were millionaires the day after Christmas!

“We were Boxing Day shopping when we decided to check our ticket,” said Grzegroz. “We kept checking the ticket over and over because we couldn’t believe we won and it wasn’t until we looked up the winning numbers online that we confirmed we really were winners.”

Lindsay and Grzegroz checked their ticket just one hour before hosting a family gathering but they kept the news quiet because the big win felt surreal.

“It’s an incredible feeling to be a lottery winner and even now a few days later, it still hasn’t set in,” said Lindsay.

The Penticton couple says their big win will allow them to pay off their mortgage and plan for their future.

“We won’t have to worry about the little things that come up. This win will help us save for the future,” said Grzegroz.

The winning ticket was purchased at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre in Penticton.

According to BCLC media relations gaming revenue helps pay for the construction and maintenance of local recreation facilities. The City of Penticton spent a large portion of its share of provincial gaming revenue generated at Lake City Casino Penticton and Playtime Penticton to pay for the South Okanagan Events Centre.
