A Sherwood Park man is $1-million richer.
Dwayne Saulter matched all seven winning digits for one of the Maxmillions prizes in a Lotto Max draw earlier this month.
“I couldn’t believe it, but there were so many people at the store I didn’t want to create a commotion,” he recalled as he claimed his prize.
According to the Western Lottery Corporation, Saulter calmly walked to the counter to sign his name on the ticket before quietly getting in line. Once he got to the front, he handed his ticket to the cashier and asked if they could check it for him. The terminal froze when the cashier scanned the ticket and confirmed his $1-million win.
“Shocked is an understatement; I was shaking for sure,” Saulter said with a laugh.
Saulter added he's going to do some renovations on his acreage and then possibly take a trip to Tahiti.
“It doesn’t even feel real yet!”
