Red Deer man hits $286K jackpot

A Red Deer man is over a quarter of a million dollars richer after hitting it big with a Lotto Max win.

Eugene Soosay was so surprised by his luck that he had to check his ticket time and time again. Every time, it told him he had won $286,514.50.

“I was stunned, just amazed,” he said.

He checked it four times at one store on Jan. 17, then took it to another store to check again. And over the next few days, he checked it again and again.

His ticket matched six out of seven numbers and the bonus on a quick pick line of his advance play ticket. He bought the ticket for the Jan. 10 and 18 draws at the Westpark Fas Gas, at 4305 55th Ave. in Red Deer.

He said he plans to help family and maybe take a trip to Las Vegas with his winnings.
