Dennis Demetrioff is looking forward to having sweet dreams after winning the Lotto Max Extra from the September 4, 2020 draw and taking home a $500,000 prize.

The Victoria resident plans on sharing his unexpected win with his two children, but not before sprucing-up his digs a bit.

“It has been a few years since I have bought any new furniture,” he said. “I might replace a few pieces in the house such as the couch – and get myself a new bed.”

As for any celebrations, Demetrioff says he’s content to lay low for a while, especially since it’ll be on a brand-new mattress or ‘Extra’-cushy couch.

Demetrioff, who describes himself as “low key,” purchased his winning ticket at the Fairway Market on Jacklin Road, where he later returned to scan it.

“I may not be overly excitable, but it still is very exciting,” he said.
