A Winnipeg woman has won $1 million in a Western Max draw, matching all seven numbers for a top prize.

Debby Neubauer purchased her lucky ticket for the October 23 draw at the Sobeys on Reenders Drive.

“At first, I thought I had won $100,000,” she said. “But I was staring at the number on the screen and realized there were six zeros, not five. That’s all I could say, ‘That’s six zeros. Six zeros!’”

Neubauer plans to use the winnings to pay off her mortgage and help with her children’s education.

“It’s a dream come true. It’s going to help make all of my dreams come true.”

Neubauer has struck luck before. She won $7,000 in 2008 just before her wedding. Those winnings were used for her and her husband to honeymoon in Germany.
