$100,000 EXTRA win in Saskatoon
Richard St. Amand buys the $24 Super Pack regularly, but he had an anything-but-regular experience when he checked his LOTTO 6/49 ticket for the April 7 draw and discovered he won $100,000 on the EXTRA draw.
St. Amand purchased his ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart located at #3-7 Assiniboine Dr. in Saskatoon. He returned to the store four days after the draw to scan his ticket.
“I had to scan my ticket a couple of times so I could count all of the zeros,” he said when claiming his prize. “When I counted out five zeros, I couldn’t believe it!”
“It was just a feeling that I can’t describe,” he said.
The happy winner said he has one main plan for his windfall – retirement.
“Most of the money is going to go toward my retirement,” he said. “Knowing I have this money put away is like a dream for me.”
St. Amand won his $100,000 EXTRA prize by matching the last six of the seven drawn EXTRA
numbers – 1011838.
