MISSISSAUGA RESIDENTS CELEBRATE $1 MILLION ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Rukmani Ramawad of Mississauga. She matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the August 9, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw to win $1 million!

Rukmani, a hair stylist, is a regular player of LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49. “I was in the gas station checking my ticket and saw all the zeros come up. I felt confused, I couldn’t believe it,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her big cheque. “Everyone in the store was so excited for me!”

The mother of one said she told her daughter about her windfall right away. “She was amazed and so happy for me,” Rukmani smiled.

She plans to put her winnings into savings and pay some bills. “I’m happy and numb. It’s such a great feeling,” she concluded.

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.
