Red Deer winners take home $100,000 EXTRA prize

Red Deer’s Leslie and Rod Stewart are basking in a $100,000 windfall thanks to the EXTRA on their LOTTO MAX ticket for the August 4 draw.

The Stewarts picked up their ticket from the Super Station at 3806 Highway Street in Valleyview the day of the draw as part of a $10 Classic Pack. The EXTRA on their LOTTO MAX ticket matched the last six digits of the winning number –1368851–to take home their prize, but they didn’t find out until a few weeks later when Leslie had a clerk at a local gas station check their ticket.

“When the cashier checked the machine flashed ‘do not tear ticket’ and she handed me the congratulations slip,” recalled Leslie. “It was exciting.”

The Stewarts are already thinking ahead about how they’ll use their prize –they want to travel when it’s safe to do so again.

“Italy would be a trip we’d love to get off our bucket list,” noted Leslie. “Or maybe Cuba.” she added with a chuckle.
