  • Lotto Multimillionaire Michelle De Roma From Surrey, BC, Says Jackpot Win An 'Amazing Blessing'

VANCOUVER — A woman from Surrey, B.C., has claimed a Lotto Max prize of $39.5 million and is thinking about a trip to Rome.

 

Michelle De Roma purchased her ticket at the Tsawwassen Mills Shopping Centre and says when she heard someone in the area won, she scanned her ticket and $39 million popped up on the screen.

 

De Roma, who's a mother of three, says her husband didn't believe her so he checked online for himself, shouted "Wow," then gave her a kiss.

 
 

 
 

She says she'd like to see the Coliseum in Rome and the family has plans for a new home.

 

She won the jackpot in the Dec. 28 draw and says she and her family spent a few days celebrating before claiming the money.

 

De Roma says matching the seven numbers was "an amazing blessing."
