Leo Lehtonen of Surrey thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he discovered he won $500,000 playing the Extra on the May 5, 2017 Lotto Max Draw.
“I scanned the ticket and couldn’t believe I saw that many zeroes,” exclaimed Lehtonen. “I feel so good and happy right now!"
Lehtonen feels especially good about shopping for a new car with his winnings.
“I’m deciding between two cars,” smiled Lehtonen. “I can’t wait to test drive them this weekend.”
