A Calgary man, who won $1M in a lottery draw in mid-February, says he will be using his winnings to enjoy a vacation and help him retire early.
Charles Stevenson won the prize in the February 18 draw from a ticket he bought from the Ridge Mart at 1920 62 Avenue S.E.
“It’s overwhelming. I checked the ticket twice, in two different stores, to make sure I was seeing things right. I was just vibrating for hours!” he said.
Stevenson says the first thing he’ll do is add onto a previously-planned trip to Mexico.
“We already planned to go to Mexico, but now I think we’ll make it a bigger trip and get our kids to come along too,” he said.
He won on the only Guaranteed Prize Draw on Feb. 18.
