Grand Prize winner retires “absolutely worry free”

Mitch Marcoux is living the good life.

Last year’s Super Grand Prize winner took home $1 million cash in our biggest draw in 2016. He has since retired and plans to do more travelling – to “places I may have never considered,” he says.

“The lottery win has helped me retire absolutely worry free a year-and-a-half earlier than planned,” Mitch said, in an email interview with St. Boniface Hospital Foundation last week.

“Our plans for the winnings were fairly simple: buy a new house and help out our kids somewhat and travel.”

Mitch says he has bought St. Boniface Hospital lottery tickets for several years, always with a colleague, and last year they decided to buy on their own.

“I went online and I picked what I thought was a very affordable option, the $100 ticket, and the rest is history.

“The lottery is for a great cause and I will continue buying tickets.”

This year’s Grand Prize draw will indeed change someone’s life again.

For our biggest winner in 2017, your choice is between $1.1 million cash or 1-of-4 home packages – a Huntington Homes bungalow in Bridgwater Lakes, a Hearth Home in Charleswood’s Ridgewood West neighbourhood, a prize with an Artista Home in Oak Bluff West and an Osoyoos, B.C. condo, and a condo prize with places in Hill Grove Point (Winnipeg) and Scottsdale, Arizona.

Our biggest Grand Prize option is worth over $1.45 million – meaning we’re about to award the good life to another Manitoban very soon.

(The Grand Prize Draw will take place at St. Boniface Hospital at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, April 28, 2017. Stay tuned and have your tickets ready!)
