Saskatoon’s Terry Semchyshen is basking in a $100,000 windfall after the EXTRA on his LOTTO MAX ticket for the Dec.11 draw matched the last six digits of the winning number – 3881582.
Semchyshen picked up his winning ticket at the Discovery Co-op at 607 Carlton Trail in North Battleford and didn’t discover his win until a few days after the draw using a ticket checker in another store closer to home.
“I couldn’t believe it!” laughed Semchyshen as he recalled scanning the ticket several times, certain what he was seeing was a mistake. He finally passed the ticket over to the cashier to verify it on their terminal and had it confirmed – he was about to be $100,000 richer.
Semchyshen doesn’t have any specific plans for the money yet, other than to pay off some bills.
“Right now, I’m just happy I won,” he said.
