Hans Pintea has a new place to call home after being drawn as the grand prize winner in the 2012 Mega Million Choices Lottery on Friday.
Pintea won the custom-built, two-storey home at 42 Cypress Ridge in South Pointe, valued at $1.2 million. He also has the option to choose a cash payout of $1,025,000. The Winnipegger will also be faced with the decision on whether to keep his new 2012 BMW X3, or take $52,000 in cash.
The lottery was put on by the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation and acts as an annual fundraiser to support life-changing medical research and patient care at St. Boniface Hospital, funding initiatives in cardiac care, diabetes, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.
Peter Thiessen of Winkler Manitoba won the $325,000 2nd grand prize package, and Adam Malodobry of Winnipeg won the $350,000 50/50 prize.
A full list of winners, including those of early bird prizes, will be available on Monday at StBMegaMillionChoices.ca.
