The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) announced Wednesday that Elisabeth Boyd of Mono had won $100,000 with ENCORE in the March 12 LOTTO 6/49 draw by matchng six of seven winning numbers on her ENCORE selection. She also won $5 for matching two of six numbers plus the bonus number on her LOTTO 6/49 selection.

“I’ve been playing the lottery for about 10 years and this is my first big win,” she said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim her winnings. “When I found out I won, I started to cry.”

Ms. Boyd has kept mum about her big win. “I’ve only shared the news with my husband. I’m going to surprise my son when I get home today and then share the news with my daughter when she returns from vacation.”

She says she’ll give some of her winnings to her children and have new hardwood floors installed in her home. “I’d also like to take a vacation within the next year. Maybe a cruise.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Total Convenience & Video on Broadway in Orangeville.
