A $100,000 surprise for Lloydminster group
Anthony Zeiser didn’t know he and a group of friends were $100,000 richer until he got a life-altering phone call.
“Well, I was surprised!” he noted, recalling the call from the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) letting him know a LOTTO MAX Subscription he’d purchased had won $100,000 on the April 21 EXTRA draw.
He’ll be splitting the windfall with Rodger Decker, Trent Turgeon, Leslie Mackenzie, Bengt Larsson, Gregory Nolin, Jonathan Teppin, Robert Groenen, Bruce Haas, Mark Wallis, and Terrance Turgeon.
The group exactly matched the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number, 6307804.
This is Zeiser’s first big win, and he’s not sure yet what he’ll do with his share of the money – but he’s pretty sure it’ll be devoted to relaxation.
“Maybe a vacation – eventually – or I might buy a camper,” he said.
