A Sturgeon Falls man is $1 million richer after winning the Lotto Max Maxmillions in the June 15 draw.
Paul Andre Theoret, 49, also won $20 on another one of his Lotto Max picks.
Theoret, a father who loves sports and dogs, says he used the Ticket Checker while at a store and was pleasantly surprised when the results were 10 times bigger than he initially thought.
“I saw Big Winner and I noticed all the zeroes,” Theoret told OLG.
“I thought it was $100,000 — I was so shocked! I stood there stunned in silence trying to process what just happened!”
Theoret says he’ll use the money for travelling when he feels it’s safe and put away the rest.
“I hope to enjoy some family trips and visit as many countries as possible,” he told OLG.
“I’ll also put some of my win aside for the future.”
His winning ticket was purchased at Gormanville Grocery on Gormanville Road in North Bay.
