Regina local takes home $250K EXTRA prize

Darryl Kuntz checked the Lotto Spot app and saw there was a $250,000 EXTRA winner in Regina. He never expected his LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket would be the winner! The Regina local won the $250,000 prize on the Feb. 2 draw. 

“I had to run and get my wife to tell her while she was tucking in our son,” he laughed. “She didn’t believe it at first!” 

The winner said he and his wife have been dreaming of a lottery win for years and they already have plans brewing. 

“A big chunk will go to our kids’ education,” he explained. “The majority will go toward our house and maybe a big family vacation.” 

“We’re pretty big future planners so this will really help with everything!” he added. “It could even knock a few years off our retirement plans.” 

Kuntz purchased his winning LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket for $6 at the Sask Lotteries Kiosk in Cornwall Centre Mall, located at 2102 11 Ave. in Regina. He won his prize by matching all seven digits on the EXTRA drawn on Feb. 2 – 5877239.
