A walk on the Boardwalk has made a Selkirk resident an instant millionaire.
The man, who pulled a $1-million "collect and win" game stamp off his coffee cup at a McDonald's restaurant, was presented with his cheque this morning.
Selkirk resident Bob Curle was identified today as the winner of the $1-million prize. The winning stamp came off a large coffee he purchased at the Main Street and Selkirk Avenue McDonald's restaurant in Selkirk.
The McDonald's Monopoly Game contest was launched Sept. 25. The contest is now closed.
He's the first Canadian winner of $1 million in the contest in five years, according to a McDonald's spokeswoman.
The prize will be distributed in 20 annual payments of $50,000, the spokeswoman said.
McDonald's owns and operates over 1,400 restaurants and employs more than 80,000 people across Canada.
