A Calgary man who won $1 million on a Lotto 6-49 draw said he’ll be using the money to travel.
Charles Stevenson called the win “overwhelming.”
“I checked the ticket twice, in two different stores, to make sure I was seeing things right,” he said in a release.
Stevenson bought the ticket at Ridge Mart Grocery in southeast Calgary on Feb. 18 and won on that night’s draw.
Stevenson said he has a couple ideas for his winnings, including enjoying a trip already planned for this month.
“We already planned to go to Mexico, but now I think we’ll make it a bigger trip and get our kids to come along too,” he said.
Stevenson also hopes the win will allow him to retire earlier than he previously planned.
