One lucky Red Deerian will be taking home some winnings. Robert Desrosier stopped at the Save-On-Foods at 6720 52 Avenue in Red Deer on May 28 to pick up his lottery tickets for later that evening not realizing his trip to the store was about to make him a winner.

The day after the draw, Desrosier checked his ticket at a local store and was shocked when he saw that he had won $100,000!

“I freaked out -- I had to double check to see how many numbers you need to match to win,” he laughed.

Desrosier matched the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number - 3429944.

The winner said he went back home and shared the news with his wife. “She was the first person I told,” he said as he claimed his prize. “I took her back to the store scan the ticket and show her!”

The happy winner has a few ideas for his windfall, “I’m going to renovate my backyard and patio and bank the rest”.
