63 year old North York woman claims $50 million LottoMax prize

Sophie Rizavas says she's not going to change much about her life...

She says she's happy, she's just going to be happier.

It's easy to say that when you're folding a cheque worth 50 million dollars and stuffing it into your purse.

63 year old Sophie Rizavas from North York, is the city's newest multimillionaire.

She won the 50 million dollar grand prize in Friday's LottoMax draw.

Rizavas wasn't working, but says she used to work as a cleaner at the women's college hospital, and cleaning for a couple of other private companies around the city.

What does she plan on doing with all that money?

Not much.

Rizavas plans on taking her whole family on a holiday, but won't change her house or her car, or buy anything extravagant.

And she plans on helping people with the money, but she couldn't say doing what exactly.

She has two daughters and 2 grand children.

Rizavas immigrated to Canada from Greece 44 years ago.
