Airdronians Catherine and Raphael Williston took home $800,000 after they purchased a $10 BIGGER SPIN ticket in late October.

The Willistons purchased their ticket from the Coopers Drive Shell at 100-401 on October 30 and discovered their win the same day when Catherine scratched her ticket after returning home.

“I kept saying ‘is this real, is this real!?’” she laughed later.

The Willistons said the first thing they plan to do with their windfall is to pay for their dog’s surgery, but they have more great ideas in mind for their windfall. “We’re going to take a trip for our 25th anniversary and hopefully buy a house,” Catherine said.

Out of three Alberta winners, the Airdrie couple came home with the biggest cash prize.
