William McKay’s wife won’t soon forget the wake-up call she received from her husband on Aug 6.
The surprise was that the Lake Country couple had won $500,000 on a Lotto Max Extra win from the Aug. 5 draw.
“I was sitting in my den checking the numbers from the night before on bclc.com,” said McKay. “My first thought was, ‘I have to wake up my wife!’ She thought I was joking with her.”
The McKay’s celebrated the big win over a nice dinner with family and says their first purchase will be an electric car. McKay said they’ll continue to enjoy retirement, only now with an extra half a million in the bank.
“This win gives us a bit more variety and fun with our retirement and will let us travel more,” he added.
