Johnson claims to have only been playing the lottery for the past couple of months, and was influenced by his father who always plays the ENCORE.
“I would always tell people that winning never happens,” said Johnson in a press release. “When the terminal shut down, I started celebrating before I even knew how much I won.”
Winning this amount of money is particularly meaningful to Johnson and his girlfriend. The two have been trying to start a family for years and the winnings will help pay for fertility treatments.
“This win will help our dreams come true,” said Johnson.
Johnson purchased his winning ticket at the Ultramar on St. Catherine Street in St. Isidore.
