Million-dollar LOTTO 6/49 win in Whitewood

Justin Gerard went to the store for snacks and left with much more than he expected. The Whitewood resident discovered his LOTTO 6/49 ticket for the April 3 draw won $1 million on the night’s Guaranteed Prize Draw!

Gerard purchased his winning LOTTO 6/49 ticket at Can-Am Travel Stop, located at Junctions 1 and 9 in Whitewood. He returned to the store the day after the draw to check his ticket.

“I had run into the store to grab a couple snacks for me and a couple buddies,” he said. “I had a couple lottery tickets to check, so I handed them to the cashier.”

“I wasn’t paying much attention when she was scanning my tickets, but I looked at the screen and thought it said I had won $1,000,” he continued. “When I took a better look, and realized I had actually won $1 million, my mind was blown! I was shocked!”

The new winner said he has started thinking about what to do with his winnings.

“I want to be responsible and put money away for my daughter and my retirement,” he said. “I’m also looking into purchasing a home – to be able to buy a house, that’s a dream come true.”

Gerard won his million-dollar prize by matching the Guaranteed Prize Draw selection – 25646029-01.

Gerard is Saskatchewan’s second lottery millionaire since the start of 2021. The first million-dollar lottery prize was a Feb. 13 LOTTO 6/49 Guaranteed Prize Draw win in Regina.
