Prince George woman looking forward to less work after $1 million win


Donna Antosko of Prince George couldn’t believe the number of zeroes she saw when she checked her Lotto Max ticket at the grocery store.

“I thought it was a joke or an advertisement when I saw all those zeroes flash across the screen,” laughed Antosko.

It was no joke as Antosko won a whopping $1 million on the May 26, 2017 Lotto Max draw.

Antosko says being a lottery winner is an incredible feeling, and plans to use her winnings to enjoy life a bit more.

“This means my husband and I have the opportunity to work less,” smiled Antosko. “It also allows us to set something up for the future of our daughters and granddaughters.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Save on Foods on West Austin Road in Prince George.
