KAWARTHA LAKES-Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Alicia Saunby of Fenelon Falls. She matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 15, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000! Alicia also won $20 and $2 on her other LOTTO MAX and ENCORE selections, bringing her total winnings to $100,022!
Alicia, a 22-year-old baker, says she is not a regular lottery player and purchased this ticket as a fluke. “I couldn’t pay for gas at the pump, so I went inside the store and ended up purchasing a ticket when I saw the jackpot was at $70 million,” she shared.
Alicia checked her ticket using the OLG Lottery App days after the draw. “I saw Big Winner and my jaw dropped,” said the avid reader and animal lover. “I was so shocked – I showed my mom right away. She’s an educational assistant and was in an online class. She told her class her daughter won the lottery and she had to go!” she laughed.
Alicia plans to pay off some bills and treat her friends and family with her winnings. “I would love to take my family on a trip for Christmas,” she 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.
