$100,000 EXTRA Prize Won in Saskatoon!
Hongwei Zhuang couldn’t believe his eyes when he scanned his LOTTO 6/49 ticket and discovered he’d won $100,000 on the February 2 EXTRA draw.
“I scanned the ticket and saw a lot of zeroes,” he said. “At first, I thought I won $10,000; then, I realized I actually won $100,000. I didn’t think it could be true.”
“I scanned a few other tickets before I asked the retailer to check for me,” he continued. “Everyone around me starting congratulating me – all I could think to say was, ‘Thank you!’”
Zhuang said he has a couple ideas for his winnings, starting with investing in himself.
“I recently bought a business,” he said. “This win is going to take a lot of stress off. It’s going to help me run my business without any worries.”
Zhuang purchased his winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket at the Lucky Lottery (Superstore), located at 2901 8th Street East in Saskatoon. He paid $1 to add EXTRA and won his prize by matching the last six digits of the add-on game’s winning number – 1512950.
