One Victoria man has a milk run to thank for a nearly $100,000 pay day, after a last minute decision to buy a Lotto Max ticket.
Joseph Brennan purchased a ticket “on a whim” while at Thrifty Foods to get a jug of milk, and he’s certainly glad he followed his intuition.
Brennan wound up matching six out of seven numbers to win $93,895 in the March 13th Lotto Max Extra draw.
According to a statement from the BC Lottery Corporation, Brennan plans to put the cash in the bank for the future.
BCLC announced that someone in Victoria was a winner on March 14th — this was confirmed to be Brennan in a statement from the corporation released this week.
The $50 million jackpot for this draw was carried over, and Brennan’s ticket purchased in Victoria was the second prize winner.
There were also two Western Canada winners, according to the Lotto Max website.
