Red Deer man wins $700,000

Another ticket remains unclaimed

A Red Deer man has more than 700,000 reasons to celebrate.

Robert Mansell won $726,341 in the June 2 LOTTO MAX draw after buying his ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart at 7 Clearview Market Way.

Mansell couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw he won.

“I checked my numbers on the computer at home and saw that I won,” said Mansell. “I went to the Mac’s Store right after that to make sure I was seeing things right.

“I scanned it on the self-checker and took a picture, then I asked the clerk to check one more time, just to be sure.”

Mansell says he plans to pay off the house, go on holiday and buy a new truck and trailer with the money.
