Lewis Kelly of Ajax knew he was on to something big when he kept matching his encore numbers to the winning numbers on OLG.ca earlier this month.

Kelly, a 63 year-old father and grandfather, matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the March 3 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000.

“I was super excited! I told my wife, and we were jumping around in joy together – we were elated,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “This feels awesome. It’s so gratifying – I feel like I’m living the dream!”

Kelly plans to go on a vacation to Turks and Caicos, pay bills, complete some home renovations, and invest the rest.

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.

The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer Snack Express on Liberty Street in Bowmanville.
