A win can happen to anyone, anywhere. This possibility stayed true for a hopeful lucky lotto player from Edmonton, Canada, who just won an enormous $30 million prize on the National Lotto Max game. The winner doesn’t have “fate” to thank, but his long-time lottery playing habit. Read all about his inspiring story here.
The winner’s name is Mario Bagnariol and he has been an avid buyer of Lotto Max tickets for several years. He buys many and saves them safely at home until he takes them back to the stores to check them every few weeks. Mario is a retired “City Of Edmonton” worker and he had absolutely no idea that he had won such a life-changing prize just a few weeks after his ticket matched the winning numbers for the November 6th draw.
In actual fact, that drawing that Mario got lucky in had a total jackpot prize of $60 million up for grabs. He bought his winning lottery tickets from a 7-Eleven store in northwest Edmonton. A few weeks after the draw had taken place, he returned to the store to check his ticket.
This time, however, he chose to check the results himself. “I put it in the scanner and a bunch of zeros came up and I said ‘Whoah,’” explained the delighted lottery winner. When he arrived at the lottery officials’ offices, he showed his level-headedness. He was very calm and composed even though his excitement gave him nerves.
“So I put it in there again to see if there was a decimal point there somewhere and there wasn’t. And it did turn out to be $30 million dollars,” said Mario. The fascinating reason as to why Mario didn’t scoop the entire $60 million after matching all the winning numbers is because there was another ticket that won the jackpot. The two players, therefore, had to split the grand prize. The other ticketholder was from Atlantic Canada.
The very first person Mario told about his win was his mother. He decided to keep the news as a surprise for his family for a few days until the money was in his account and the win was confirmed. He also needed to attend his grandson’s birthday party and didn’t want the news of the win to overshadow the birthday.
“That’s the most important thing for me, being able to help my family,” Mario said. The winner plans on making investments with the money. “If I was younger I’d go out and buy a Ferrari,” Mario said wisely.
If you also want to change your life, you can. This story is proof that a win can come from anywhere, as long as you stay dedicated to the game like Mario.
