$250,000 DAILY GRAND WIN IN SASKATOON!
Sean Turner had to triple-check his DAILY GRAND ticket before he believed he won $250,000 on the August 24 draw.
“I checked my ticket the first time and laughed,” he remembered. “I thought, ‘I’ve never seen a ticket checker play a practical joke.’ I checked it again, but I really didn’t believe it!”
“I only started to believe it when I checked my numbers on the printout,” he said.
The happy winner said he is going to take some time to decide what to do with his winnings.
“The way I look at it is, ‘Waste not, want not,’” he said. “It may never happen again, so I’m going to take it all step-by-step.”
Turner purchased his winning DAILY GRAND ticket at Shoppers Drug Mart, located at 2325 Preston Avenue South in Saskatoon. He won his prize by matching all five of the main draw numbers: 8, 30, 33, 34 and 47. He shared the $500,000 second prize with a ticket purchased in Quebec.
