A Calgary man is $2 million richer after scratching the winning numbers on a lottery ticket this week.

Tracey Austinson initially thought he’d won $10,000, but then he noticed the 200 times multiplier on his card.

“I took a second look and yelled, ā€˜Holy [ā€¦], I just won $2,000,000!'” he said in a statement. ā€œI was very surprised.ā€

Austinson purchased the winning ZING ticket from the 7-Eleven at 1704 61 Street SE in Calgary.

He plans to pay off some bills and invest the money, plus he’s looking at property.

“Iā€™m also going to buy a house and live mortgage-free,” he said.
