Rene Drouin, an Airdrie resident won $100,000 on his LOTTO MAX and EXTRA ticket.

“I brought my ticket to the store and scanned it,” Drouin said. “The machine started making a sound like ringing bells, my wife and I were shocked!”

He won his $100,000 prize by matching the last six digits of the EXTRA number drawn on September 12.

“We were looking at the screen and my wife said, ‘Oh, that sounds good,’” He continued, “It really did sound good!”

Drouin stated he and his wife have one major plan for their recent lottery win.

“We’re going to pay off our mortgage,” he said. “If there’s anything left after that, maybe we’ll go to McDonalds to get a hamburger.”

Drouin bought his ticket from the London Drugs at 110-2781 Main Street South in Airdrie.
