It wasn‚Äôt until the retailer validated his ticket, that Garry realized he had won big. ‚ÄúI went into the store to replay my tickets when the machine shutdown. I grabbed the printout of winning numbers and thought I had won $5,800. The retailer noticed I had also matched the bonus number and she told me I won $96,000!‚ÄĚ

Garry says he had always hoped for a big win. ‚ÄúIt was incredible! My heart was pounding, my legs were vibrating, and my hands were shaking. It was pretty awesome to experience this,‚ÄĚ he smiled.
