Eddy Balewa had been functioning in Alberta and bought his solution at a Safeway Gas Bar in western Edmonton in June.
When he lately went to a shop to check it, the merchant told him he won $12,500.
But Balewa looked at the screen, and found even more zeros.
The retailer then told him he actually won $12.5 million.
When it comes to ideas for his windfall, Balewa has a few ideas, including buying a car.
“The first thing I possess to do is come back to earth,” he said, laughing.
“After that I’ll probably purchase a new house and maybe a car. Other than that I believe I’ll simply consider a few holidays and that will be great!”
Balewa’s solution was one of 4 – 1 other sold in Alberta, 1 in Uk Columbia, and a single in Ontario- that shared the $50 million LOTTO Maximum jackpot for Summer 5, matching the figures 2, 10, 13, 16, 30, 33, and 48.
