$1 million winner from Abbotsford eyeing the future

30/03/2017

Siriphone Johnson won a cool $1 million Maxmillions prize on the February 10, 2017 Lotto Max draw, and Abbotsford’s newest millionaire is looking forward to planning her family’s future.

“We’re going to use some of the money to pay our mortgage,” exclaimed Johnson. “And it’ll be wonderful knowing our children will have a good college fund when they grow up!”

Despite looking ahead with her winnings, Johnson did find ways to celebrate in the here and now.

“We took our kids to the toy store to splurge,” smiled Johnson. “We also did some shopping on Robson Street.”

The winning ticket was purchased at the Lottery Ticket Centre in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre in Abbotsford.
