Oak Bluff resident wins $1 million on MAXMILLIONS
“I always try to pick up a LOTTO MAX ticket when the jackpot is high. And especially when there are MAXMILLIONS draws,” said Michael Sparks of Oak Bluff. “I like having the extra chances to win.”
Sparks was thrilled when he won one of the 28 MAXMILLIONS prizes offered on the December 30 LOTTO MAX draw.
The new millionaire won his prize by matching all seven MAXMILLIONS draw numbers. His numbers were 1, 2, 9, 35, 36, 47 and 48.
Sparks said he doesn’t have any immediate plans for his winnings, but he intends to invest in his family’s future.
“I’ll put some money away for the kids’ education,” he said. “After that, I’ll take my family on a vacation and then put the rest in savings.”
Sparks purchased his winning ticket at the School Road Superstore Lottery Kiosk, located at 3192 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg.
