A man from Canada has recently become the proud winner of a whopping $60 million with the international lotto game, the Lotto Max. He lives in Mississauga and has come forward to claim the winnings two months after the draw took place.
The man is even more blessed because it just so happened that he won this terrific prize on Christmas day! That’s probably one of the best gifts anyone could possibly ask for.
His name is John Henry and he got presented with his cheque last Wednesday together with Joan Patterson who is another winner. John shared that he has many charitable plans for his winnings and despite taking so long to claim the money, he knew about it ever since it happened on Christmas day.
John checked his numbers on Boxing Day and that’s when the reality hit him. He couldn’t quite believe his eyes. He told the lottery officials that he was in a state of “shock”, “disbelief” and “terror” because he couldn’t decide where to put his winning ticket to ensure it was safe before making the claim. “The darn thing felt like a hot potato,” he explained of his dilemma.
“I circled every single number and then blurted and then blurted out a few choice words that I won’t repeat,” laughed John. He is a retired miner and consultant. He wants to continue the spirit of Christmas by sharing more than half of his fortune with a charity for young people he wants to start.
“We’ll blow it, but we’ll blow it all on good causes,” he told lottery officials. He has a passion for children’s health, children’s athletics, and mental health. He also wants to use the money for home renovations and give some to his wife, two children, and two grandchildren.
He did mention, however, that he does want to spoil himself with his passion for horses. “I’ve always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby. I think I will,” he shared.
