Big lottery win for Maskwacis man

A man from Maskwacis saw some lucky numbers ring up the big bucks last month.

Dustin Littlechild bought a Lotto Max $16 quick pick ticket at the K&M Foods outlet in Maskwacis for the Oct. 4 draw.

He would later realize, after scanning the ticket, that his ticket had won him $271,449.10. The ticket matched six of the seven numbers drawn as well as the bonus number.

“I scanned it several times before I believed what I was seeing,” said Littlechild, in a Nov. 18 press release from the Western Canada Lottery Corporation.

“I started sweating and feeling nervous.”

What Littlechild has planned for the windfall includes trust accounts for his children and pay off a couple things.

“It’s a dream to help secure the future for my kids. I’d also like to pay off my truck and pay for my upcoming wedding next summer,” he added in the release.

The winning ticket numbers were 20, 31, 35, 36, 39, 42 and 44 with 23 as the bonus number.
