Melville couple takes home $100K EXTRA

One Melville couple is shouting from the rooftops that they’ve won $100,000 on the January 23 EXTRA draw. Connie and Michael Suwala checked their LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket while running errands. 

“The cashier had to check it a second time because we thought it was $1,000,” Michael said. “Then Connie couldn’t stop yelling!” 

“I couldn’t get through the door, I just kept shouting, ‘We won!’” Connie laughed. 

The winners have big plans for their windfall. 

“Most of the money will go to our youngest child who is in university,” they said. “And it will go to our house renovations.” 

“We’re just dumbfounded. It’s so hard to believe!”  

The Suwalas purchased their winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket for $6 at Royal Drug Mart, located at 135 3 Ave. E in Melville. They won their prize by matching the last six digits on the EXTRA drawn on Jan. 23 – 5951189.
