Gregory Ponto woke up on January 19 $100,000 richer thanks to the 'extra' he added to his lottery ticket. 

“I was going through my morning routine, drinking my coffee and checking my emails,” Ponto explained as he claimed his prize. Ponto discovered his win by checking his numbers against the winning numbers posted online. 

“I saw the numbers, then once I saw the winner was in Alberta, I knew I won”

He purchased his ticket from Sylvan Lake Sobeys on January 12.

Ponto said he doesn’t have any plans for his windfall. “I’m just going to put it into the bank.” he said.
“It feels good,” he added.
