‘I was yelling and swearing’: Pure shock for BC woman after $637K lotto win

Samantha Lowe has a morning routine, which involves her waking up and checking her e-mails right away.

Recently, the Maple Ridge woke up to an email from PlayNow telling her she had won a prize.

When she found out how much that prize was, she practically leaped out of bed.

“When I logged in, I couldn’t believe it when I saw my balance in the corner of my screen,” Lowe explained.

She had won $637,354.10 from the Feb. 23 Lotto Max draw.

“I was yelling and swearing, it was pure shock,” she said. “I had a huge smile on my face, too. Because as soon as you see that … how can you not smile?”

Lowe said she has no specific plans for her winnings yet, but says that most of it will go towards paying off some bills.
