$100,000 EXTRA WIN IN PILOT BUTTE
Elaine Kokoski won $100,000 on her January 12 LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket. The Pilot Butte resident waited a few months to claim her prize while she thought about how to use the windfall.
“I used the WCLC Mobile App to check my ticket after the draw,” she said. “The first time I checked all I saw was a bunch of zeros. I checked again, counted the zeros and called my husband into the room.”
“I scanned the ticket again, and we hugged and laughed and were completely shocked!” she said.
The happy winner said she and her husband have a couple ideas for their windfall, but for the time being they plan to put it into savings.
“We decided to hold on to the ticket until we decided what we wanted to do with the money,” she said. “For now, we’ve decided to pay some bills and save it.”
“Overall, we’re happy to have some added security,” she continued.
Kokoski purchased her winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket at Sherwood Co-op, located at 460 Albert Street in Regina.
