Sim­coe man wins lot­tery

The Delhi News-Record - - NEWS -

A Sim­coe man is $1 mil­lion richer af­ter win­ning a Maxmil­lions prize in last month’s Lotto Max draw.

Ge­orge Childs, 62, said he has been play­ing the lot­tery for about 30 years. Up un­til the big win on Oct. 26, the most he had won in a sin­gle draw was $125.

Childs, who is em­ployed as a ship­per for a trac­tor com­pany, had some time to think about his wind­fall.

“I had to head to the air­port af­ter I learned I had won – what a drive that was,” he said in a me­dia re­lease.

The mar­ried father of two plans to re­tire and take a Caribbean va­ca­tion.

“This win is ex­cit­ing and over­whelm­ing – it’s go­ing to take some white sand for it all to sink in,” he said.

The win­ning ticket was pur­chased at Real Cana­dian Su­per­store in Sim­coe.
