$500,000 windfall in Moose Jaw
Moose Jaw resident Keith Littler received a pleasant surprise when he checked the winning ticket numbers for the April 8 WESTERN MAX draw online and discovered he was about to be $500,000 richer!
“I’ve always wondered what it would be like to win big!” Littler recalled when he claimed his prize.
He confirmed that it is, indeed, “neat.”
To be sure he really was about to become half a million dollars richer, Littler checked his tickets once more before sharing the news with his wife.
“She couldn’t believe it,” recalled Littler.
“I was calm. I didn’t want to break a hip!” he added with a laugh.
Now that Littler knows what it’s like to win big, he is still deciding what he would like to do with his windfall.
Littler matched the winning numbers for one of the $1 million prizes drawn for the April 8 WESTERN MAX draw and will split the prize with a ticket bought in Alberta. Both tickets shared the winning numbers 3, 7, 10, 27, 41, 49 and 50.
The winning ticket was purchased on April 6 from Circle K located at 526 9 Ave. SW in Moose Jaw.
