A Sylvan Lake man is $100,000 richer after winning the EXTRA draw on his Lotto Max ticket.
Neal Arksey says his winning ticket for the Feb. 16 draw was a prize himself. He won a free ticket on a previous lottery ticket, which was purchased at the Circle K on Sylvan Drive.
His free ticket matched the last six numbers of the Feb. 16 draw, and came with a more substantial prize of $100,000.
Arksey said he was shaking and stunned when he checked his ticket on the Lotto Spot! app.
“When I saw all of the zeroes come up on the screen I had to sit down,” he said.
Arksey has a few plans in store for his new prize, including paying some bills and putting money away for his children.
“We’d also like to take a trip somewhere when the travel restrictions have been lifted,” Arksey said.
