Winner is Saskatchewan’s 15th lottery millionaire of 2018
Saskatchewan Lotteries Media Release– Dick Davis is kicking off the New Year with an extra spring in his step. The Archerwill resident won $1 million on his LOTTO MAX lottery ticket. Davis won one of the MAXMILLONS prizes offered on December 21 to become the province’s 15th lottery millionaire of 2018.
Davis bought his $21 quick pick ticket from Archerwill Co-op Bulk Service located on Hwy #35. He discovered his win at the same store the day after the draw.
“I was with my brother, getting gas,” he remembered. “He checked his ticket and won $2; then I walked up and checked my ticket.”
“I started walking—pacing—around the store,” Davis said. “I started yelling, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’”
“I felt numb. It was just like a dream!”
Davis said his windfall will help him start a new life, as he recently moved back from Alberta to be nearer to his family. He said he plans to invest most of his prize, and he’s thinking about taking a trip to Ireland.
Davis was Saskatchewan’s 15th winner of a million dollars or more in 2018, setting a new provincial record. And the first new millionaires of 2019 may already be aware of their good fortune. Two million-dollar prizes won by tickets sold in Saskatchewan—but not in either Saskatoon or Regina—have yet to be claimed. Those prizes are:
· A $1 million LOTTO 6/49 prize won on the June 16, 2018 draw. The winning number was 36810921-01
· A $1 million LOTTO 6/49 prize won on the December 22, 2018 draw. The winning number was 38325929-01
The winners of these prizes have one year from the winning draw date to claim. The winners can contact WCLC Customer Care at 1-800-665-3313 during regular business hours to make arrangements to claim the prizes.
