A Red Deer woman and her father are celebrating a $250,000 Extra win from a recent Lotto Max draw.

Jenise Muldowney of Red Deer and her father Pat Muldowney, who lives in De Winton, south of Calgary, shared a ticket in the Oct. 19 draw.

Pat bought a couple of Lotto Max tickets for himself and his daughter at a convenience store in Calgary.

When he checked the tickets the morning after the draw at another retail location, he wasn’t sure what he was seeing when the $250,000 prize amount displayed on the player-facing screen.

“I thought it was an ad!” he laughed.

In fact, the pair’s ticket had exactly matched all seven Extra numbers drawn to win the game’s top prize.

“When the clerk said it was a winner, tears started to build up,” Pat recalled.

“It was surreal,” he continued. “I called Jenise to tell her. She said, ‘Yeah, right!’”

Both Pat and Jenise said they plan to use some of their winnings to pay bills. But each also has an eye on a special vehicle. Jenise said she’s always wanted a Harley, while Pat said he’d think about buying himself a classic Impala.
