Host of fishing show reels in $1 million prize11/09/2015
Mission resident Michael Mitchell never thought he would reel in $1 Million on a Scratch & Win ticket until he did just that this week.
The TV host of BC Outdoors Sport Fishing was returning home from filming when he decided to scratch his Extreme Millions ticket. That’s when he discovered he was a millionaire!
“I had to ask my dad to check the ticket over because it wasn’t registering that I had won $1 million. I still don’t think it has sunk in for me,” said Mitchell. “I smiled when I got the ticket validated because the store clerk was so excited and immediately gave me a high five.”
Aside from sharing the news with his father, Mitchell told his wife about winning the $1 Million and at first, she didn’t believe him.
“She jokes with me and says things like, should I be asking a millionaire to do the dishes?” laughed Mitchell.
Mitchell says he will be sharing the money with his parents to pay off their mortgage and will also put the winnings toward college education for his children. The first purchase he will make will be a new swimming pool for the entire family to enjoy.
The winning Extreme Millions Scratch & Win ticket was purchased at the Stave Lake Esso in Mission.
Extreme Millions will offer you the best chance to become a millionaire with the most ever 25 top prizes of $1 Million and an overall prize pool of $200 Million.
