There was no mystery around this one.

Five days after a Lotto Max draw saw a ticket sold in Kitchener win $1 million, a couple from the city have been awarded the prize.

OLG says Vinod and Neeru Arya purchased the winning ticket at a Zehrs store on Ottawa Street.

The $50-million grand prize in the March 14 draw was won by a ticket bought in British Columbia, while a ticket bought in the Stratford area was one of three to share a $1-million prize.
