Million-dollar Christmas gift

A Vernon man was finally able to get his hands on his lotto winnings today.

Devin Cooper had to wait for the holidays to pass before he could claim his $1 million Maxmillions prize. 

“I was dancing around my apartment all weekend!” he said.

Cooper checked his ticket online for the Dec. 22 Lotto Max draw after learning someone in Vernon had won. 

“I was kind of freaking out when I saw that I had matched all seven numbers,” he said.

The win couldn’t have come at a better time, said Cooper. “I am ecstatic! It is unbelievable. This is definitely the best Christmas gift I have ever received!”

The 32-year-old said he plans on investing in real estate and hopes to purchase a vehicle. Cooper will also celebrate with his family over dinner and share his holiday cheer.
The winning ticket was purchased at Sir Winston’s Pub in Vernon.
