Moosomin couple wins $100,000 on EXTRA
Danette and Gordon Russell are one step closer to retirement! The Moosomin pair won $100,000 on the April 27 LOTTO MAX and EXTRA draw.
The happy couple won a LOTTO MAX free play on a previous draw and decided to pay $1 to add the EXTRA draw.
Danette said they discovered their win when she scanned her tickets in-store, but they’re still having a hard time believing their good luck.
“I was completely stunned,” she said. “I thought for sure someone was kidding me. I don’t think either of us really believes it yet – it’s shocking!”
The new winners said they have a couple ideas for their winnings, starting with putting a chunk of it away.
“We’re going to invest some and have a little bit of fun with some,” said Danette. “Mostly this money will just add to our retirement nest egg,” said Danette.
The Russells purchased their winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket at Borderland Co-op, located at 119 East Access Road in Moosomin.
