A Victoria rock guitarist won $1 million from a Feb. 26 Lotto Max draw.
Scott Murcheson, lead guitarist for the Victoria band MK5, realized he was a winner after his sister checked the ticket on her phone.
“Finding out I was a winner was completely shocking,” Murcheson said, in a news release. “I’m still in shock.”
The local musician bought the ticket at The Loft Pub in Victoria.
“I thought, ‘why not?’ I feel like you have to buy a ticket to win,” he said.
To celebrate, the rocker plans on buying a new guitar and amp, while also gifting some of the prize to family and friends.
“I can’t really describe how it feels, but it is like nothing else, it’s a crazy feeling,” he said.
