The lucky winner claimed his prize on Friday and has opted to remain anonymous.
"I’ll admit I didn’t have a clue I’d won until I checked my ticket today!" he told lottery officials. He also admitted times have been tough for him over the past few years, but stated he has no intention of going on a mad spending spree.
"I’ll instead put my Wednesday Lotto prize money in the bank, take some time to think about what I’ll do with my windfall, and then make some wise decisions."
