“The third time I scanned it, I took a picture of the screen so I could show my wife and daughter,” he said in a press release.

“I showed them and said, ‘I won $100,000!’ My daughter looked and said, ‘dad, that’s a million dollars!”

Bear said he has a couple plans for his winnings, starting with a family getaway to see the K-Days Exhibition and a music festival in Edmonton this summer.

“I’d also like to take my family to a Montreal Canadiens game,” he said.

“We’re big Canadiens fans, but we’ve never been to a game together. I want to take them to the home opener in Montreal.”
