Pierre Richer was simply shopping for ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner with his daughter when he acquired a life-altering lottery ticket in Montreal.

The duo was at a Super C grocery store in the city's LaSalle borough, unaware that their errand ahead of the long holiday weekend would lead to a staggering $50 million jackpot.

If pie crust had not been on sale, Richer mentioned that they wouldn't have visited the fortunate location.

"I wasn't planning to buy it this week, but I had two free tickets in my pockets," Richer said. "I went to play them and asked for two Lotto Max tickets at the counter, and that's what happened. It cost me $10."

The Lotto Max draw occurred last Friday, but it was Richer's wife and daughter who discovered their unexpected windfall when checking his numbers the following day.

However, Richer himself barely reacted to his impressive, multi-million-dollar win. When he was called into the room, he essentially responded with a nonchalant "OK" and promptly left.

"I was a little happy," Richer admitted. "But, you know, I just left the room, and that was it."

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, he claimed that he hadn't undergone any significant changes, but he couldn't help but smile as confetti rained down on him while he held up a massive check.
