$100,000 EXTRA win in Prince Albert
SASKATOON (Feb. 8, 2021) — John Mansbridge was calm when he discovered the EXTRA on his Jan. 15 LOTTO MAX ticket was a winner, but only because he didn’t know exactly what he’d won.
“I used a ticket checker and knew I won more than $1,000,” he said. “But I didn’t know if I won $10,000 or $100,000.”
It was, it turned out, $100,000.
“I didn’t know for sure until I got home and put on my glasses,” he explained. “I felt pretty darn good after that!”
The winner said he doesn’t have any big plans for his winnings yet, but he is happy to add more money to his retirement fund.
“It’s nice to have more financial breathing room in my retirement,” he said.
Mansbridge purchased his winning ticket at Lake Country Co-op @ Cornerstone C-Store, located at 779-801 15th St. E in Prince Albert.
