Julie Groomes of Huntsville has won $100,000 with ENCORE (January 19, 2019 LOTTO 6/49 draw).
She matched six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize.
“I buy my LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 tickets with ENCORE online because I always forget to check my tickets,” laughed Julie, a 53-year old personal support worker, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
Following the draw, Julie received an email and discovered her windfall. “I spent most of the day in a daze,” she smiled.
The personal support worker, married for 22 years, plans on paying off some bills and travelling to Costa Rica.
“It’s surreal,” she enthused.
ENCORE can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.
The winning ticket was purchased online at PlayOLG.ca.
