Central Alberta man wins $100,000

Winning WESTERN MAX ticket

A Lacombe resident is $100,000 richer thanks to his winning WESTERN MAX ticket.

Kenneth Comfort said he was shocked when he checked his ticket for the August 17 EXTRA draw.

“I took my ticket to the store and scanned it on the self-scanner. When I saw the amount come up on the screen my first reaction was, ‘That can’t be right,’” said Comfort in a statement.

“I couldn’t believe it at first!” he laughed.

The Lacombe local said he hasn’t made any plans for his winnings yet.

“I don’t want to do anything right away. I’m going to take my time deciding what to do.”

Comfort purchased his winning WESTERN MAX and EXTRA ticket as part of a $24 Super Pack from the Lacombe Co-op Gas Bar located at 5850 Highway 2A in Lacombe. He won his prize by matching the last six digits of the EXTRA number – 4094489. He won $10 in subsidiary prizes.
