An Okotokian just won $100,000 from a birthday gift.

Sasha McLaughlin got her winning LOTTO MAX ticket as a present from her mother, with the last six digits of the EXTRA number being drawn on June 16.

McLaughlin brought her ticket along with her while buying snacks at the store and was jumping for joy when she saw she'd won.

She was quoted in a release from the AGLC with a couple of ideas for her winnings.

"I want to take my family on a trip somewhere this winter... But the first thing I'm going to do is pay some bills."

Her mother bought the winning ticket at an ESSO in Warburg, Alberta.
