Serge waited a week after the Célébration gala before having his ticket checked.
He was speechless when he discovered they were millionaires.
That evening, he went to play his scheduled hockey game, but admitted that his mind wasn’t really on it!
The lucky winner plans to work fewer hours, and his spouse will retire. As they both love to travel, they’re considering an African safari and a tour of French châteaux and vineyards.
