$1 TURNS INTO $100,000: SIMCOE TEACHER CELEBRATES $100,000 ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Paul MacCormack of Simcoe. Paul matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the September 1, 2020 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000!

A 53-year-old married father of two, this is Paul’s first win since purchasing his tickets on PlayOLG.ca. He discovered his win while at home one morning. “I got an email and when I logged into PlayOLG.ca I realized I won,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “It was shocking and a good way to start the day!”

The teacher of 30 years told his wife about the win right away. “She was the only one home with me at the time. I asked her to check on the website and confirm that I had won! I texted my children later that day and they thought I was joking,” he laughed.

Paul plans to pay some bills and make some renovations to his home. He also plans to save some of his winnings. “I’m still trying to process everything. I couldn’t sleep the first two nights knowing that I had won,” he smiled.

“You can’t win if you don’t play,” he concluded.
