Less Work, More Relaxing for North Vancouver Lotto Max Winners


Jace and Roshina De Ath are looking forward to more free time after matching all seven numbers in the Lotto Max Maxmillions draw held back on October 26, 2018 to win $1 million.

“We will consider trying to slow down our work schedules,” said Roshina. “We work pretty much all the time.”

Jace, who has played Lotto Max since it started, was at the office when he found out that he and his wife were a million dollars richer.

“I was so excited,” exclaimed Jace. “I had to check the ticket on my buddy’s Lotto! App on his phone.”

The pair plans to invest some of its prize money and pay off the mortgage on a property in Whistler.

“This has been so exciting,” added Jace. “We always hoped we’d win. And we will continue to buy tickets.”
