A Spirit River man is the Peace Country’s latest millionaire. Remee Richard won a million dollars on the October 7th LOTTO MAX draw.
He bought his ticket at the Go Market in Rycroft on the 5th and says he was in disbelief when he scanned it a few days later, saying he checked it every day for the next week just to be sure he wasn’t dreaming.
“The first person I told was my dad. He didn’t believe me at first, but when I showed him the ticket, he was excited for me.”
Richard adds he’s in no rush to spend his winnings.
“Honestly, I’m young, and I’m fortunate to have everything,” he explained.” So I’m going to put it into savings.”
Three other tickets sold in the region were winners during LOTTO MAX’s record-breaking jackpot run from August to late October.
