SADDLE LAKE - A Saddle Lake man is $100,000 richer after winning the large chunk of cash playing the LOTTO 6/49 EXTRA.

When Donovan Whiskeyjack checked his ticket through the Western Canada Lottery Corporation mobile app on May 9, he said he had to take a moment to sit down and let it sink in.

"I just looked at the ticket, put it right back in my wallet, and sat down to soak it in," he said, in a media release from WCLC. "Then, I called my boss and took the afternoon off," he added, with a laugh. Whiskeyjack said he's going to set aside some of the money for his children, and invest the rest.

Whiskeyjack purchased his winning ticket as part of a Triple Pack from Hunter's Corner Petro Canada in Acheson, the day before the draw.
