A Winnipeg man has scratched his way to a $1 million lottery jackpot.
Donald Rice purchased the $10 lottery ticket from Bruce Convenience Store in Winnipeg and discovered his win the following day on the $100 Million Fortune Scratch ‘n Win ticket.
“On Saturday morning, I got my loonie out and started scratching,” he said in a release. “I did a double-take when I saw that I’d won!”
He plans to use his windfall to pay bills and take a trip next winter.
But the majority will be spent on securing an earlier retirement.
“It definitely takes a lot of bumps out of the road ahead.”
