Grand Marais Couple Wins $1M Lotto Max Prize

A Grand Marais couple is the province’s newest set of millionaires.

Blynda and Ian Thomas claimed their $1 million Lotto Max prize Thursday in Winnipeg.

The win comes after Blynda visited the community’s convenience store on February 28 to purchase snacks in advance of watching a movie with her husband.

“I forgot everything that I went to the store to get,” Blynda said after discovering she was a winner.

The couple doesn’t have any major plans for their winnings, although they would like to take a trip somewhere warm and purchase a new vehicle.

The Thomas’ son, who lives in Calgary, will be coming home this weekend to celebrate with the family. video
