He’s going to be able to buy a lot more pizza.

Adam Johnson, a Red Deer man, recently won $250,000 in a lottery.

While he was waiting for his pizza order, he stopped to check his LOTTO MAX ticket and buy a soft drink. That’s when he learned his ticket was worth $250,000 in the March 11 draw.

“I checked a couple of tickets before scanning the winning one,” he said. “I was so excited, I ran out of the store and forgot to get my drink. I couldn’t believe it!”

Johnson plans to buy a house with his winnings. He purchased the winning ticket at the Lottery Stop at Bower Place Shopping Centre.
