Joan Patterson plans to re- fence her ranch now she is $60 mil­lion richer. The Des­boro, Ont., woman was in­tro­duced at the OLG Prize Cen­tre in Toronto Wed­nes­day as the jack­pot win­ner from the Feb. 5 Lotto Max draw. She also hopes to buy a new horse trailer, a sil­ver Corvette and add to her home — but over­all noth­ing much will change. “We had a re­ally nice life any­way … but apart from do­ing a few things we want to do, I don’t think it is go­ing to be all that dif­fer­ent, to be hon­est,” she said. Patterson, 63, pic­tured, didn’t check her ticket un­til 12 days af­ter the draw — she had been on va­ca­tion, horse­back rid­ing in Ari­zona. She re­turned home and on Feb. 17 checked her ticket. She jok­ingly told her hus­band Jim she was “go­ing to go and see about my $60-mil­lion ticket.”
