Darryl Brown plans to spend 2022 checking off her bucket-list travel destinations after discovering she won a $1 million Maxmillions prize during the June 11, 2021 Lotto Max draw.

“I used the Lotto! app and couldn’t believe it,” the Lake Country resident said after checking her ticket at home. “I checked it again, and again, and again!”

Brown purchased her ticket at 7-Eleven on 39th Avenue in Vernon and said her husband was the first person who learned about her win.

“I showed my husband and he said ‘someone is messing with you! This can’t be real!’ He still doesn’t completely believe it,” she explained.

Brown looks forward to having a barbecue with friends and family to celebrate her life-changing win. As for what she plans to do with her windfall, travel is top of mind, with Amsterdam being the first destination on her list. She will also help out her family. 

On how it feels to be a millionaire in two words, Brown said, “Disbelief. Excitement!“
