 Sharon Fraser was eating breakfast and remembered to check her PlayNow.com account for the Lotto Max draw results, as she has a subscription. Even though she was still waking up, Fraser definitely felt more alert after learning she won the $18-million jackpot from the February 23, 2024 Lotto Max draw.

“I was at my breakfast table with my husband and son,” recalled Fraser. “Every Saturday morning, I check the [Lotto Max] results. I thought it was a free play and said, ‘they’ve made a mistake.’ I called customer support and they verified everything!”

Fraser first shared the news of her win with her husband and children “The kids were in disbelief at first!”

BCLC awarded the $18-million prize today, during a celebration in its Vancouver office.

While the Ucluelet resident is in no rush to make plans, she wants to buy property and a new car. As an avid sailor, she also hopes to take some trips on her sailboat, with destinations in the south being her top picks.

On how it feels to win?

“Exciting! We don’t have to worry – we’re retirees. It’s also going to provide security for my children.”

So far in 2024, B.C. lottery players have redeemed more than $34 million from Lotto Max. Lotto Max is a nationwide lottery game drawn on Tuesdays and Fridays after 7:30 p.m. (PST).
