Her grand plans didn’t end there. A new camper beckoned in her mental horizon – a dreamy thought fostered by previous expeditions with her son, with whom she often merrily embarked on traditional powwowing journeys. “We’ve braved the elements in tents during our powwowing trips, often fighting the pouring rain,” she quipped. “Having a camper of our own would indeed be a welcome change!”

Hailing from Falun, the town she calls home, Nerubenko shared her decades-long tradition of buying lottery tickets with her mother. Preserving the tradition even after her mother’s passing, she credits the win as a loving gesture from her late mother. When she discovered the fortune she held in her hands, Nerubenko was struck silent, momentarily overwhelmed with the emotional weight of her victory before joyous reality dawned on her.

Suddenly, her disbelief gave way to ecstatic realization. “I couldn’t fathom what was unfolding before me,” she gushed, reliving the exhilarating moment. “I re-checked it on the Lotto Spot app, then streaked out of the store, laughing hysterically. I couldn’t keep my shrieks of joy to myself even in the parking lot, and I was squealing with glee in my truck.”

Having shared her exhilarating news with her husband and son, the first beneficiaries of her good fortune, Nerubenko now looked forward to charting out plans to put their windfall to good use. Humble and grounded, her family is all set to soak up the exciting times ahead.

“Life has been modest till now,” she smiled, “but now we have opportunities our previous circumstance wouldn’t have allowed. I can’t wait to embark on spontaneous trips and have exciting adventures with my husband too,” she mused.

Her lucky break came from the ticket she purchased from Cree Convenience at the trendy 2 & 3 Samson Mall, Maskwacis. Her million-dollar victory was secured by matching numbers from one of the 14 additional draws on the May 7 draw that included 9,11,12,13,21,37, and 49.
