$1 TURNS INTO $100,000: WALTERS FALLS RESIDENT CELEBRATES $100,002 ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Bruce Irving of Walters Falls. Bruce matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the July 18, 2020 LOTTARIO draw to win $100,000! Bruce also won $2 on another one of his ENCORE selections, bringing his total winnings to $100,002.

Bruce, 59, said he plays numbers that are a combination of his grandchildren’s birthdays. "I didn't check my tickets for a month," shared Bruce, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. "This winning ticket was the second one I scanned. I was surprised and scared,” he admitted.

Bruce plans to purchase a new car for his wife, pay some bills and invest his winnings.

ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.
