Toronto woman wins $22 million

A Greater Toronto area woman has 22 million reasons to smile today.

According to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Association, Vivian Leung of Richmond Hill struck it rich after winning the $22.6 million Lotto Max jackpot June 17.

Leung, who rarely plays the lottery, said she just happened to have a free ticket and decided to play it on a whim.

“I really didn’t notice the big jackpot amount,” said Leung. “I just knew I had a free ticket to play and I finally found some time last week to cash it in. I just chose a Quick Pick as usual, and this is the ticket that won!”

Leung said it wasn’t until the cashier told her how much she’d won that she realized how significant the cash prize was.

“When she told me $22 million, my face got red and I got a headache. I was so stunned.”

Leung said the first thing she’ll spend her new-found money on is a home for her 84-year-old father, somewhere in Toronto so he can be closer to where she lives.

She may also want to spend some of her earnings on a Toronto storage unit, as she’ll likely want to purchase some new furnishings for her home and move out the old ones.
