WINNIPEG — If you’re feeling lucky, you might want to pick up a lottery ticket before Friday night’s draw. Lotto Max is the biggest it’s ever been – a record breaking $60 million dollars, plus millions in prizes.
Starting in July of 2015, new rules raised the cap to $60 million dollars, from 50. This is the first time it’s reached that level.
The massive jackpot has triggered “what would you buy?” conversations everywhere, including in the Global Winnipeg newsroom, where some on air personalities couldn’t help but weigh in.
“I would be completely surrounded by water” Evening News anchor Heather Steele said, quickly bringing up images of dream rooms with various ocean type features.
Weather specialist Michelle Lissel’s plans had more of a Parisian feel to it. “Travel would definitely be in my immediate future to one of my favorite cities of all time.”
Russ Hobson’s love of sports clearly stretches far beyond his job. “How about a dream home with my own indoor hockey rink?”
Morning News host Holly Alexandruk would jump on a plane after buying tickets to travel the world before getting on her brand new Sea Doo boat.
Weather specialist Mike Koncan would scoop up a couple of cottages he’s had his eye on and equip them with an aquarium staircase.
So, what would you buy?
