Lacombe man wins $100,000; bought winning ticket in Blackfalds

Tony Depauw is a man of few words when he talks about how it felt to find out the EXTRA on his LOTTO 6/49 ticket for the June 19 draw was worth $100,000.
“It was okay,” he noted with a wry grin.
Depauw picked up his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6065 Parkwood Road in nearby Blackfalds a couple of days before the draw. His ticket matched the last six digits of the winning EXTRA number – 6730800 – to take home the windfall.
Now that he has his winnings in hand, Depauw says he’s still got to figure out what to do with the windfall.
“Might buy a few more cows,” he said.
