A Red Deer County resident is now $143,595 dollars richer after checking her Lotto Max ticket from the January 23rd draw.

Nadine Coyne, who bought the ticket in Red Deer, says she couldn't believe it. 

“I scanned the ticket at the store and went numb,” she said while claiming her prize. “I started to feel more excited about it later on. It feels scary and exciting all at once,” she said.

The new winner said she has big plans for her windfall.

“I’m planning a trip to New Zealand with my sister and her husband,” she explained. “We’re going for three months!”
