WCLC lottery creates 10th Albertan Millionaire of 2021

  • Published date08 March 2021

A Calgary man claimed the honour of being the tenth winner from Alberta to net at least $1 million with a Western Canada Lottery Corporation lottery ticket in 2021.

Greg Gerla’s winning ticket saw him take home $1 million from the January 27 Lotto 6-49 guaranteed prize draw. The ticket was purchased in Lethbridge at the Savers Convenience Store on 13 Avenue North. He went back to the same store a few days later to see whether he had won. There have been ten millionaires made in 2021 since a lottery win by Albertan siblings in December.

Gerla animatedly described his discovery of the unexpected windfall, saying, “I had a couple of lottery tickets to check, I won $20 on one ticket, a free play on another ticket, then I scanned this one, whoa! I was so surprised. I really didn’t believe what I was seeing on the screen at first.

Gerla plans to put his winnings into investments and savings but also plans to splash out on a new car.
