BAINSVILLE, Ontario – Katherine Humphries and Florence Sangster of Bainsville are $500,000 richer after winning with INSTANT MAX MONEY (Game #2210).

Mother daughter duo, Katherine, 39, and Florence, 83, said they have been playing the lottery together for about 20 years. Florence likes the INSTANT tickets and Katherine likes the draw games. “That’s how we’ve decided who buys which tickets,” shared Katherine.

Florence played her ticket at home and couldn’t believe she won. “My mom asked my dad to double check the ticket and then they called me to come over. They pointed to the ticket and it took me a while before I noticed – we all shared an intense moment of disbelief!”

Katherine said she plans to purchase a new vehicle for her family of five and save some for her children’s education. Florence doesn’t have any immediate plans for her winnings yet.
