A Charlie Lake man is a half-million dollars richer.
William Boutilier had the winning ticket in the Nov. 18 Lotto Max draw that matched all four Extra numbers.
“A co-worker mentioned someone may not show up at work because someone won in Fort St. John,” recalled Boutilier. “That’s when I checked my ticket on the lotto app and found out I won!”
Just be sure, though, Boutilier had the ticket checked in store at the same place he bought it.
“I am speechless and overwhelmed,” he said.
Part of the windfall will be set aside for his kids.
“This win makes life financially less stressful and will set my boys up for the future.”
The winning ticket was purchased at the Q Mart on 100 Avenue in Fort St. John.
Another $500,000 Lotto Max Extra prize from Oct. 14 remains unclaimed.
The numbers from that draw are: 27-34-51-87.
