Tee times and home improvement on horizon for $1 million Surrey winner


Newly minted millionaire, Gordon Foss, is planning to take things a little easier after winning a $1 million Maxmillions prize on the January 6, 2017 Lotto Max draw.

“I enjoy golfing but my shoulder has been buggered for a while,” exclaimed Foss. “I’m hoping I can golf again if I don’t have to work as much!”

Foss is aiming for more than just birdies and eagles with his winnings. He also has his sights set on ambitious home projects.

“I might rebuild my house or invest in a property,” smiled Foss. “There are so many avenues I can take. It’s almost unbelievable!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Save-On-Foods on Nordel Way in Surrey.
