Timothy Tiefenbach had to check and recheck his WESTERN MAX ticket before he could believe he hon $1,000,000 on the May 24 draw.

Tiefenbach purchased his $11 quick pick ticket at the Circle K store located at 4940 1 Street in Clareholm. He returned to the same store to check his ticket about a week later.

“I checked my numbers on wclc.com first,” he said. “But I knew I had to get the ticket checked before I could be sure that it was a real winner.”

“I was stunned when I scanned the ticket at the store,” he laughed. “I still couldn’t believe it!”

The new winner said he has a couple ideas for his winnings.

“To start, I’m going to pay some bills and put away for retirement,” he said. “I might look into buying a new boat in a little while down the road.”

Tiefenbach won his million-dollar prize on one of WESTERN MAX’s 14 additional prize draws. His winning numbers were 7, 8, 10, 21, 25, 29 and 50.
