Hair-raising windfall for EXTRA winner
When Davidson’s Doug Gregor found out he was $100,000 richer, he had the same reaction a lot of us would.
“It definitely makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck a little bit,” he laughed.
Gregor took home the second Top Prize on the EXTRA he added to his LOTTO MAX ticket for the April 7 draw, matching the last six digits of the winning number – 4254350.
Gregor picked up his winning ticket the day before the draw at the Shell station on Highway 11 South in Davidson – which is also where he found out about his win after using a ticket checker in the store. He got the ticket as part of a $24 Super Pack, which he says he plays regularly.
“I always buy tickets, but never expected to actually win,” he laughed, noting that he’s not completely sure yet what he’ll do with his windfall, but said he’d likely spend some of it on his farm.
