Colin Becker was at the 7-Eleven at 4003 56 Street in Wetaskiwin on the morning of August 19 when he decided to pick up a ticket for the lotto max draw later that day.
When he brought his ticket into a local store the next day, he handed it to the cashier who checked his ticket on the terminal, revealing a $100,000 windfall thanks to the extra Becker had added to his ticket.
“It was a shock,” Becker recalled as he claimed his prize.
The winner from Hay Lakes won by matching the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number – 3833068. The happy winner has a couple ideas for his recent windfall. “I’m going to put the money towards some home renovations and I’m thinking about buying a horse for our acreage,” Becker said.
