Lacombe resident, Robert Popick has won the lottery. He claimed the game’s prize of $250,000.  

Popick bought his Lottomax and Extra ticket from the Lacombe Rexall located at 5010 52 Street in Lacombe. He returned to the store shortly after the draw to check his ticket.

“I was pretty surprised,” he said while claiming his prize. “I had to scan my ticket a second time before I started believing it.”
