Stephanie Tennant also won $20 on another one of her selections, bringing her total winnings to $373,138.20.

Tennant, 33, said when she saw an email that said she was a winner, she didn’t know if it was real.

“I was in disbelief,” she said.

“When I told my boyfriend and mom, they didn’t believe me because the draw was on April Fools’ Day!”

She said she can’t quiet describe the winning feeling.

“It’s unbelievable – dreams do come true.”

She plans to use her winnings toward a new car, a motorcycle and put some into her house.

The winning ticket was purchased online at OLG.ca.
