Joseph Brennan won more than $93,000 in the Lotto Max Extra on March 13

A milk run earned one lotto-winning Victoria man a windfall.

Joseph Brennan bought a ticket “on a whim” while at Thrifty Foods to get a jug of milk. He wound up matching six of seven numbers to win $93,895 in the March 13 Lotto Max Extra draw.

Brennan plans to bank the cash for the future, according to a release from the BC Lottery Corporation.
