$100,000 EXTRA windfall 'a game changer'
When Lloydminster’s Murray Holland used the in-store ticket checker to see if his LOTTO MAX ticket for the June 26 draw was a winner, he wasn’t sure what he was seeing – literally.
“I didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t count all the zeroes,” laughed Holland. “I had to take it to the cashier to verify.”
Holland, who lives on the Saskatchewan side of the Lloydminster border, matched the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number for that draw – 4486392 – netting him the game’s second-top prize of $100,000. He picked up his winning ticket earlier on the day of the draw at the 18th Street Gas Bar at 5002 18th Street on the Alberta side of the border.
Holland said the windfall will make a huge difference in paying down some debt.
“It’ll be a game changer,” he noted. “I’ll get rid of all the credit card bills – it’ll be great!”
