Arthur Forsythe shows off a big grin after picking up his lottery winnings.

A High River man has picked up a major lottery prize.

Arthur Forsythe' LOTTO MAX ticket for the January 10th draw won $250,000 on EXTRA!

“I felt relief more than excitement,” he said about his reaction to discovering the win.

Arthur checked his ticket at the same place he bought it, Rainbow Esso in High River. He scanned it on the Ticket Checker, and discovered the $250,000 EXTRA win plus an additional $20 prize on LOTTO MAX.

He plans to use the winnings to pay some loans and invest in order to set up a nice retirement.
