A man from Prince George in the western Canadian province of British Columbia has won a $500,000 Lotto Max prize four years after winning big on the Lotto 649.
Frederick Greene first won $249,000 on the Lotto 649 game back in 2014, and last month he topped up that win with another $500,000 thanks to the Lotto Max. The successful lottery player said that he was shocked to find his ticket was worth anything at all, particularly because he had already heard that the Lotto Max drawing on September 14th had produced no jackpot winners. Another Prince George lotto winner from Patrick Kukko took home $1 million on the Lotto Max, while another western Canadian recently became a millionaire after winning on two different lottery scratch cards in five months.
“I’m still a little shocked when I think about it,” he told Lotto Max officials. “But I feel very grateful.” The lottery winner said that he scanned his ticket for the September 14th drawing on the Lotto App on his phone and couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw how much he’d won. A couple from Western Australia wondered if they were the luckiest lotto players in the area after they won the Australian Lotto twice in a year.
His wife was also dubious when he told her that he’d won another $500,000 on the lottery, “she questioned if it was real and asked me to scan it again,” he said. With his second big lottery win under his belt, Mr Greene told Lotto Max officials that he hopes to use his most recent good fortune to go on a well-deserved vacation. A couple from Alberta, also in Western Canada, were finally able to take a honeymoon after they won $50 million on the Lotto Max.
“It’s been a while since I went on a long vacation,” he explained. “I would love to go to Costa Rica.” He continued to tell lottery officials that thanks to his second lottery win, he’s grateful to have more spare time and the funds to enjoy the things that he loves. A father from Western Australia said that he was looking forward to spending more time with family after winning big on the Australian Lotto.
