Victoria Resident Speechless After $474K Lotto Max Win

November 07, 2022


Kerri Butterworth’s recent Lotto Max win left her shocked beyond words after discovering she landed exactly $474,526.70 from the October 4, 2022 draw.

“My head was shaking, I was speechless,” she said of the moment she realized she won after scanning her ticket on BCLC’s Lotto! App. “I still have no words… I’m trying to wrap my head around it!”

The Victoria resident purchased her ticket from the Westshore Town Centre on Jacklin Road and was at home having her morning coffee when she decided to check her ticket. 

“I usually look at the results first online and that’s when I saw there was a winner in Victoria. I was in shock… I didn’t think I was reading it right.” 

The first person she told was her youngest daughter, who was still sleeping at the time. 

“I woke her up and at first she thought she was in trouble. I had her look at the ticket and she freaked out!”

Butterworth is a major Yankees baseball fan and plans to put part of her prize towards a trip to see them play. 

In addition to the game, she plans to use her winnings to help her parents and daughters, and will also pay down her mortgage.
