Maksym Dudnyk plans on doing some serious relaxing upon finding out he won $250,000 from the Lotto Max draw on June 22, 2021.
Dudnyk purchased the ticket from Hasty Market on Main Street in Vancouver and was on his way to work when he decided to check it on the BCLC Lotto! app.
“I was in my car when I checked it and thought I had won $250,” he recalled. “I checked it again and saw a lot of numbers and then I knew… my first thought was confusion and a little bit of nervousness.”
Once the win had settled in a bit, Dudnyk called his wife to share the awesome news. “She thought I was joking!”
Dudnyk and his wife celebrated over some wine. He said he’s looking forward to a one-month family vacation to Tofino in the near future.
“I can work a bit less and maybe even take some weekends off,” he exclaimed.
