April 13, 2016   ·   0 Comments

Rodger Heavens of Orangeville is a happy guy after winning $100,000 with ENCORE (March 18, 2016 LOTTO MAX) when he matched six of seven winning numbers on his ENCORE selection.

“I left my ticket in the car right after purchasing it,” recalled Rodger while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “Two weeks later I found it and went to the store to check my numbers.”

That is when Rodger found out he was a big winner. “The retailer told me OLG will be calling the store shortly to speak with me. She then whispered, ‘It’s $100,000!’ I called everyone in my family to share the exciting news.”

Rodger says winning the lottery is a surreal experience. “This is life changing. We have been living pay-check to pay-check and now we can finally be comfortable.”

And he has some special plans for his windfall. “I’m going to take my eight year old daughter to Disneyland in Florida. I will get the special package so she can meet all the princesses.”

ENCORE can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Townline.
