A first-time lottery player is now a multi-millionaire. Montreal resident Shu Ping Li has claimed a $70,000,000 Lotto Max jackpot in the October 9 draw, according to a statement posted to the Loto-Québec website.
The corporation explains that Li purchased her first ticket ever "after seeing that" another "major lottery prize had been won in Québec."

She bought the winning ticket at the Dépanneur Mu (12101, avenue du Bois-de-Boulogne) and found out she won the day after the draw.
Loto-Québec says she still hasn't decided what to do with her fortune.
"This is the biggest prize that Lotto Max players can win, but also the biggest prize of any lottery game offered by Loto-Québec and in Canada," Loto-Québec President and CEO Lynne Roiter said in the statement.
"We’re proud to present a Québec winner, for the second time in our history, with a prize of this magnitude."
Roiter explained that "a family of eight from the Capitale-Nationale and Chaudière-Appalache regions won the same record jackpot amount" in February.
