When Swift Current resident, Charlene Driver, checked her Lotto Max ticket for the June 1st draw she realized  that she had won big.

Charlene won $500,000 on the draw and she said it turned a meaningful day into an even more meaningful day. Driver said that June 1st is the anniversary of her father's death and also her daughter's birthday.

Driver says, "We're going to pay some bills and put some of it away. This win came at a good time for us-we're financially secure now."

The ticket was purchased at the Pioneer Co Op Association in Swift Current and the $500,000 was half of the one million dollar MAXMILLIONS prize draw.

Driver shared her prize with a winning ticket purchased in Ontario.
