It’s a dream many people have – to win enough money to own their own home outright. For Ronald Nagribianko, it’s now a reality.
His Lotto Max ticket for the Jan. 11 draw matched six out of seven numbers and the bonus for a $112,861.10 win.
“I didn’t know it was a winner until I checked it at the store,” Nagribianko said.
He checked his $11 ticket at the store he purchased it from — the Husky in Ponoka. Once he and the retailer realized how much the win was for, they both started to dance around.
“I was shocked,” Nagribianko said of discovering his win. But the windfall is more than welcome, as it will allow him to do something many people dream of.
“I’m going to pay off my mortgage,” he said with a smile.
