$100,000 EXTRA win in Denare Beach
Bruce Reid almost threw out $100,000! The Denare Beach local was going through paperwork when he came across a WESTERN MAX and EXTRA ticket for the March 26 draw. After checking the numbers and realizing he didn’t win the main draw prize, Reid almost threw it out.
“I checked the numbers online and didn’t think the ticket won anything,” he said. “I was going to throw it out, but thought I should check the ticket just in case it won $2 or something… and sure enough, it was a pretty big winner!”
"I was in shock and a little taken aback,” he explained. “I couldn't believe I had won such a big prize. I've never won anything like this in my life!”
The winner said he has always dreamed of travelling and is looking forward to doing more – when it’s safe to do so – without having to worry about the cost.
Reid purchased his winning EXTRA ticket at Di's Confectionery, located at 501 Creighton Ave in Creighton. He won his $100,000 prize by matching the last six digits of the EXTRA number – 3861384.
