May 20 draw drew a lot of attention over the long weekend, the release said, but Roy didn’t hear the news until he returned later for more gas.“I went to gas up again, getting ready to go to work tonight, and scanned my ticket and saw it said ‘major winner,’ so I went to the clerk and asked him to check it,” Roy said.“He punched it in and they didn’t seem to know what was going on, so I said, ‘Did I win 50 bucks or what?’ He didn’t say anything, so I said ‘What, millionaire?’ Then he showed me the ticket and I was like, ‘That’s $5 million.

I’m a millionaire.’”The release said Roy commutes more than two hours to Saint John each week for work, then returns on weekends to be with his family.

Now that he’s a millionaire, he plans to take time off work.“I’ll take a year off, maybe take a different direction, maybe start my own business,” Roy said. “Maybe work on my own schedule.”A father of two, Roy and his wife now plan to pay off their mortgage and invest for the future.

Roy also said he may finally pursue his “lifelong dream” of getting a pilot’s licence.The Needs where the ticket was purchased will receive a one per cent seller’s prize, Atlantic Lottery said.The 6/49 draw takes place every Wednesday and Saturday with two multi-million jackpots available to be won.

Glastonbury Festival 2023: Arctic Monkeys play career-spanning headline set as Alex Turner bounces back to health
Arctic Monkeys performed a career-spanning headline set at Glastonbury Festival today (June 23) as Alex Turner made it to the stage just days after illness threatened to cancel their headline slot.Earlier this week, the band announced the cancellation of their Dublin show that was scheduled for Tuesday after Turner, who had been suffering from an acute case of laryngitis, was instructed to rest, leaving their return to Worthy Farm up in the air.Emily Eavis then shared that she was confident Arctic Monkeys would play Glastonbury, but that they “have a couple of back-up plans”.Today, though, the news everyone was hoping for was confirmed: Arctic Monkeys’ headline set would go ahead.Turner and his well-rested pipes were on strong form throughout the set – for which he donned his trademark suit and shades – which saw the Sheffield indie rockers kick off with ‘Sculptures of Anything Goes’.Other tracks given a Worthy Farm outing included ‘Cornerstone’, ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’, ‘Arabella’, ‘Mardy Bum’, ‘There’d Better Be A Mirrorball’, ‘505’ and many more.“The Monkeys are back on the farm!” Turner proclaimed to the huge crowd.Today marked the band’s third time headlining Glastonbury, with their previous performances taking place back in 2007 and 2013.‘Body Paint’ from newest album ‘The Car‘ saw Turner and co. deliver a wildly electric faux set closer with an extended outro, before the band returned for an encore of ‘I Wanna Be Yours’, ‘I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor’ and ‘R U Mine?’.Fans reacted enthusiastically to the band’s energetic performance, while others were more divided on Turner’s distinctive style of showmanship.
