REGINA - Dennis and Deborah Fowler of Carnduff got a big surprise when they checked their Western Max and Extra ticket on the Lotto Spot app.
The couple won $100,000 on the Dec. 10 Extra draw.
“I must have scanned the ticket 15-20 times,” said Deborah. “We kept checking it over and over again – we were shocked."
The Fowlers said they initially thought they had won $100, but soon grasped it was much more.
“We thought the screen said $100, but then we realized there were too many zeroes for it to just be $100,” said Deborah. “We are very excited.”
The winning couple said they haven’t decided what they’ll do with their windfall yet, but they have a couple of ideas to get them started.
“We’re going to pay some bills and prepare ourselves for retirement,” said Dennis. “Eventually we would like to do some travelling, maybe to the Caribbean.”
The Fowlers purchased their winning ticket from This N’ That C-Store & Eatery with Motel, located on Highway 18 in Carnduff. They won their $100,000 Extra prize by matching the last six digits of the winning Extra number - 6682306.
