REGINA — Tim and Janet Beler’s 2022 ended on a high note after matching all seven winning numbers to one of the million-dollar prizes on the Dec. 30 Western Max draw. Their winning numbers were 5, 8, 16, 29, 32, 43 and 49.
The pair purchased their winning ticket from Save on Foods at 4520 Albert St. S in Regina on Dec. 28.
Tim discovered their win the morning after the draw on New Year’s Eve.
“After reading the paper, I checked all my lottery tickets on my phone app,” he explained.
“I didn’t believe it at first,” he said, adding that he scanned his ticket eight times before the win sunk in. “I sat there and then walked around as if someone hit me with a 2x4!”
Tim woke up his wife to share the goods before taking his ticket to a nearby store to check the win one more time using the self-checker.
The happy Regina winners have a few ideas for their windfall.
“I like to golf, so maybe new golf clubs or a new truck,” Tim said.
“I’m going to be designing a new kitchen for us,” Janet added.
