Someone in BC is ready for retirement after taking home a MASSIVE lottery jackpot — all thanks to the lotto subscription she set up online.

Jennifer Cole of West Kelowna says the decision to set up a lottery subscription on BCLC’s in May was “one of the best of her life.”

She claimed her $31 million on Friday.

The Tuesday Lotto Max draw is $15 million.
