$100,000 EXTRA win in Regina
One, two, three, four, five…James Watson counted and recounted the number of zeroes that popped up when he checked his LOTTO MAX ticket for the July 6 draw.
The EXTRA Watson added to his ticket netted him a $100,000 windfall.
“I checked it again and again,” he said. “Probably five or six times!”
Watson purchased his winning ticket the morning of the draw at North Albert Shell, located at 275 Albert St. North, in Regina.
“There aren’t many people in the store normally, but that day it felt like there was way too many people,” he laughed.
The Regina resident is looking forward to putting his windfall towards a lakeside property and some investments.
He won his $100,000 EXTRA prize by matching the last six digits of the winning number of the July 6 draw – 4017799.
