Bodnar Kuzma is $1,950,000 wealthier after finding out that he is the winner of the Canadain Lottario raffle. He had bought a ticket for the November 11th draw this month and won the first prize jackpot.
Kuzma who has in the past never won more than $250 from any lottery game thought at first that his win was $1,950 and that the rest of the zeros were decimals.
Kuzma stated in an interview with lotto officials that he plans on using the winnings to save for his retirement. He stated also that the machine where he was trying to double check his ticket for any winnings was malfunctioning and the clerk at the shop also was unable to get the machine to work.
Thinking that he had won $1,950 he tried again to scan his ticket, as he usually does, which is faster than checking the numbers one by one with the online draw results. That is when he found out that he is the winner of the jackpot prize of $1,950,000.
Kuzma said that he will remember this date – November 11th – for the rest of his life, as being the luckiest day of his life, the day that he succeeded to beat the 1 in 4,072,530 odds and to match all of the 6 winning numbers from the draw on order to win the jackpot prize.
