BARRIE, ONT. -- A Stouffville, Ont. stay-at-home mother of five hopes winning over $600,000 with the lottery will help make some difference in her life.

Lisa Williams-Rozario, 49, played the July 8 Lotto Max to win $613,729.

She said she frequently plays when the jackpots are big. "When I checked my ticket using the OLG Lottery App, the phone jingled, and Big Winner popped up," she shared.

Williams-Rozario said she had to check the ticket six more times to ensure she had won.

The married Stouffville woman said SickKids would be one charity she hopes to share her winnings with before travelling. "Costa Rica and Reno are on my list," she said.

The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Tenth Line in Stouffville.
