“Holy sh*t, really? Well, how about that!” he said while laughing with glee.
“That’s a beauty! Thank you very much!
“I scanned the ticket about five minutes ago, and it said to call you guys. Just as I was about to call, my phone started ringing and it turns out it was you! How crazy is that.
“I thought I had won $1,000! But this is so much better
“I am feeling pretty rapt right now. I never thought I would win this much.
“God I don’t think I will sleep tonight. I will be thinking about what to do with this win, that’s for sure!

When asked how he man planned to spend his win, the Loftus man declared that he would share it with his loved ones.
“We are retired, so we will invest it for the great grandkids to help with
