OSHAWA RESIDENT CELEBRATES $1 MILLION ENCORE WIN

TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Russell Horsfall of Oshawa. Russell matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the March 30, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw to win $1 million!

Russell, a 49-year-old married father of two, said when he scanned his ticket using the OLG Lottery App, he thought that he was seeing things. “I didn’t think my coffee kicked in yet. I had to scan it again – I couldn’t believe it!”

Russell plans to complete some home renovations and take a road trip in the future.

“This feels like a warm fuzzy feeling inside,” he smiled.

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.

In accordance with government-issued lockdown measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, OLG is currently limiting the number of in-person prize claim appointments at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to only those that require a face-to-face interview. Customers with prizes over $50,000 are asked to call 1-800-387-0098 to discuss available prize claim options. Prize claims up to $49,999.90 should continue to be submitted by mail. The health and safety of our customers and employees remains our top priority and OLG looks forward to providing future updates on the availability of in-person prize claims.

The winning ticket was purchased at Sam’s Food Store & Smoker Discount on Hunt Street in Ajax.
