The Elkford resident purchased the winning ticket at Sneaky’s Pub on Michel Road and could not believe his eyes when he won the 9:00 p.m. draw.

“I was watching the screen and saw the location come up in my area,” said Johns. “I checked my ticket where I bought it. My first thought was that it was unbelievable”.

When asked what prompted him to buy a ticket, Johns explained, “I buy them on a regular basis but I wish a little harder when the jackpots are higher”.

As for celebrating his exciting win, Johns said he is planning to purchase a vehicle and to make his daughter’s upcoming wedding extra special.
