A Red Deer couple is now $100,000 richer after winning an Extra prize on a July 21st Lotto Max lottery ticket.
Greg Streit needed to do a double-take after scanning his ticket and seeing a $100,000 prize flash across his mobile screen.
Streit and his wife, Kimberly, won their $100,000 prize on the July 21 EXTRA draw.
“I scanned the ticket on the Lotto Spot app and there it was!” Greg explained. “I didn’t have my glasses on, so I had to squint and look a couple times.” Greg said he asked his son-in-law to triple-check the ticket for him before telling his wife the good news.
“I texted a screenshot to my wife,” he said. “Honestly, I was in such shock. I had no idea what to do after realizing what we had won.” The winners said they have a couple ideas for their recent windfall.
“We’re going to pay some bills and take a family vacation somewhere,” said Greg. “At the end of the day, we’re just thankful for a bit of financial stress relief.”
