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 โ€“ 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,โ€ 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 โ€“ 6030644.

"I feel pretty happy and a little bit of shock," Carfantan added.

Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
