Regina couple wins $100,000 on EXTRA!
James Cormier was excited to tell his wife, Myrna, that their LOTTO MAX ticket won $100,000 on the July 9 EXTRA draw. Myrna had a feeling something was up when James came home with an unusual look in his eye.
“He came inside and looked like he really needed to tell me something,” said Myrna. “He gave me the ticket and told me to check it.”
“I scanned the ticket on the mobile app and $100,000 came up on the screen,” she continued. “I looked at him and all I could think of to say was, ‘Good boy!’”
The happy winners celebrated their win with an afternoon together on their deck.
James said they have started to think about what to do with their winnings, but haven’t made any plans yet.
“We’ll pay off some bills to start,” he said. “But we’re going to take some time to think about what to do with the rest. For now, we’re happy just being thankful for the extra financial security.”
The Cormiers purchased their winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket at Regent Park Petro Canada, located at 3625 Sherwood Drive in Regina. They won their prize by matching the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number – 5172617.
