Blackfalds woman wins $100,000

BLACKFALDS – Three days after the January 26 LOTTO MAX draw started like any other for Leslie Jones. She ran errands, filled her vehicle with gas, and checked her lottery ticket. And that’s when the day became extraordinary – she found out she had won $100,000.

“The girl at the counter looked at me and asked, ‘Did you see that?’” she said.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Jones.

Jones purchased her winning LOTTO MAX ticket at a Blackfalds food store. She added the EXTRA for $1 and won her prize on the January 26 draw by matching the last six digits of the EXTRA number – 5045079.

The new winner said she plans to share her windfall with her children.
