Ronald Stright started 2021 with a big LOTTO MAX win! The Red Deer winner won $190,399 on the January 1 draw.
Stright’s winning ticket was a free LOTTO MAX ticket he redeemed at Fas Gas Penhold Service, located at HWY 2A and HWY 42 in Penhold. He returned to the store a few days after the draw to scan his ticket.
“I didn’t know I had won anything until I scanned the ticket at the store,” said Stright. “I was shocked. I started shaking. I was kind of a mess.”
Now that he’s had some time to process his win, the happy winner said he has started making plans for his winnings.
“I’ll do the responsible things – pay some bills and invest,” he said. “But honestly, I’m just happy that I’ll be able to relax.”
Stright won the second-top LOTTO MAX prize by matching six out of the seven drawn numbers and the bonus number – 18, 21, 28, 29, 32, 49 and the bonus, 38.
