$250,000 EXTRA win in Regina!
Harold Walbaum was extra surprised by his EXTRA lottery win. The Regina resident won $250,000 on his February 20 LOTTO 6/49 and EXTRA ticket – a much larger prize than he had initially thought.
“I checked my ticket online at home,” he said. “I thought I won $10; when I saw I had actually won $250,000, I said, ‘Hooray!’”
The happy winner said it took some time for his win to sink in.
“I made a cup of coffee and checked my ticket a couple more times,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it.”
“It’s the biggest stroke of luck I could have ever dreamed of – I can’t believe it happened to me!”
Walbaum said he only has a couple of plans for his winnings.
“I’d like to take a trip somewhere and share some of the winnings with my family,” he said. “Aside from that, I think I’ll probably just sit on it for a while.”
Walbaum purchased his winning ticket at Rochdale Husky, located at 5330 Rochdale Blvd in Regina. His winning EXTRA selection was 5984269.
