Brad Kelly of Lacombe, Alta., says he bought his usual $19 quick pick ticket from a convenience store in Claresholm, Alta., while he was driving home from shopping.
But it wasn’t until about a week later that he stopped to check a few tickets.
He says when his numbers came up on the self-scanner, he thought the machine must be broken.
But the retailer confirmed the win and Kelly started celebrating.
His wife, Amanda, says she's not sure what they'll do with the money, saying they probably will fulfill some dreams they haven't even thought of yet.
