A Salmon Arm man is $500,000 richer after a lottery win.

Michael Strauch matched the Extra numbers from the April 26 Lotto Max draw.

Strauch checked his ticket at the Matchbox Smoke and Vape Shop in Salmon Arm, according to a BCLC media release.

“The retailer said, ‘You are a winner! You just won $500,000.’ I was freaking out and said, ‘Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, this is a dream,” Strauch said in the release.

“A few customers in the store congratulated me and we were happy together in that moment. It was really beautiful.”

He said when he got home he and his partner were shedding tears of joy.

“This win gives me the ability to slow down if I want to. Every day is a celebration now. We can relax and buy a home and that brings an overwhelming amount of joy and gratitude into our lives.”
