Lotto Newbie Wins Major Prize

Many people play the lottery all their lives without achieving a big lottery win, but 42-year-old Tina Ferrone from Ottawa, Canada, pulled off a $48 million Lotto Max win with her very first ticket.

Ferrone bought her ticket on a whim and admitted her early success took her completely by surprise.

She now plans to use some of the money to help support her family and is keen to open a yoga and wellness studio.

Ferrone's husband was diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago and said the win was a 'big boost' after such a rough run for the family.
