Bob Curle of Selkirk, Manitoba claimed his $1 million cheque on Thursday, as won in a Monopoly contest put on by McDonald’s.
Curle collected his prize at the Main Street McDonald’s location in Selkirk. That’s where he recently pealed off a “Collect and Win” game stamp off his large cup of coffee.
It’s the first time someone in Canada has won a $1 million prize through the contest in five years. The prize will be paid out over 20 years without interest in increments of $50,000.
The contest, which has since ended, launched on September 25.
