New Brunswick parents have a son with a big heart. The latter asked him to retire as a lottery millionaire.
Global News reports that Kelly Mountain’s father found it hard to believe the news when his son called him to tell him that a small $3 had turned into $1,533,377.
A Canadian resident of Grand DQ has won a progressive jackpot in the Atlantic Lottery online game Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway.

With a new fortune in her pocket, Kelly Mountain made it a priority to make sure her parents no longer had to work constantly.
“It was a good call. (…) I always dreamed of being able to do this for them,” he told Global News.
“No one thought it was (a) legitimate win until I explained that it was on the Atlantic Lottery and not some random app you don’t know,” the winner said.
In addition to keeping her parents comfortable, Kelly Mountain plans to pay her bills and take small trips.
