St. Brieux resident claims $100,000 prize
Kent Carfantan is taking home a $100,000 prize thanks to the EXTRA he added to his ticket for the Aug. 2 LOTTO MAX draw!
The St. Brieux resident discovered his windfall on Aug. 13 when he brought his ticket into the local store and scanned it using the self-checker. Carfantan recalled being shocked about discovering his windfall as he claimed his prize – so shocked he initially thought the prize was much lower.
"A guy was sitting there having breakfast and I told him I just won $10,000!" he laughed.
"As I was signing, I didn't think it was right,” he said.
So, the winner scanned his ticket once more for good measure, and sure enough when he rechecked it, it showed that he had won $100,000.
"I didn't say a word; I just walked out," Carfantan said.
The happy winner plans to put his recent windfall toward bills.
He purchased his winning ticket at the Country Crossroads at Junction HWY 2 & 41 in Wakaw on July 30. He won by matching the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number for the Aug. 2 LOTTO MAX draw – 6030644.
"I feel pretty happy and a little bit of shock," Carfantan added.
