Christmas Eve saw a grandmother of five collect a $50-million Lotto Max cheque, just in time for the holidays.

Susan Flam - in her mid-60s - is a Thornhill resident who originally thought she won $50,000 when she first checked her ticket in a grocery store on Saturday.

"I felt I got hit by a train," she said when she discovered it was a few more zeroes than she thought.
