A Moose Jaw man won $500,000 from his Lotto Max ticket bought in the city.
Patrick Standish purchased his $21-ticket at the 7-11 Food Store at 20 Caribou St. W., according to a release from Saskatchewan Lotteries. The draw was held on March 14.
A week after the draw, Standish checked his ticket.
“I scanned it twice on the Ticket Checker, but I couldn’t make out the numbers,” he said in the release.
He took the ticket to another store to use a terminal to check it out.
“I said, ‘Holy Cow!’” said Standish. “I just stood there.”
His ticket exactly matched all seven winning numbers that were drawn for one of the 50 Maxmillions prizes offered that night. He shared the prize with another ticket from Ontario.
The winning numbers were 13, 14, 16, 32, 33, 41 and 46.
