Dalmeny man wakes up wife with news of second $1 million win
D'Arcy Glover might have a case of déjà vu after winning $1 million on the May 27 WESTERN MAX draw.
After checking his numbers on the Sask Lotteries website, he ran into his bedroom and woke up his wife.
"I think I just won another million!" Glover recalled exclaiming with a laugh.
This is Glover’s second major windfall from playing the lottery. He also picked up a $1 million MAXMILLIONS prize on a LOTTO MAX draw back in July 2018.
"It's a really good feeling!” laughed Glover as he claimed his WESTERN MAX prize in the last couple days of May. “This time around, it's probably more of a good feeling because — as much as it's a cliche — 'what are the odds?!'"
Glover picked up his winning WESTERN MAX ticket at the Saskatoon Co-op Dalmeny C-Store at 510 Highway 305 S in Dalmeny a couple of days before the May 27 draw.
The winner said he usually likes to stay up late to check his lottery tickets. This time, however, was different. He decided to go to bed early the night of the draw and was then met with a pleasant surprise when he woke up.
"I woke up at 3 a.m. and thought I should check my tickets since I was already up," he said. "This was the first one I checked.”
Glover doesn't have any current plans with his windfall.
"I don’t think much will change," he noted.
Glover’s ticket netted him his windfall by matching the numbers for one of the 14 $1 Million Prizes – 1, 3, 6, 30, 34, 36, and 39. He also won $10 by matching the last two numbers on the EXTRA.
The odds of winning the WESTERN MAX $1 Million Prize and a LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS prize are each 1 in 33,294,800 per play.
Sask Lotteries is the main fundraiser for more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in communities across Saskatchewan.
