Glenn Reeves of Ajax won $100,000 in ENCORE

Saying ‘yes’ to ENCORE paid off for an Ajax man, who matched the last six of seven numbers in exact order in the February 7 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Glenn Reeves says he’s been playing the lottery weekly for decades. “I typically play LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX and I always say yes to ENCORE,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

The retiree checked his ticket on the OLG app when he thought he won $100. “My son said, ‘Dad, that’s a comma, you won $100,000!'” he said. “That’s when the adrenaline started to flow.”

He plans to put his windfall toward bills and share with his children. “I also want to do some work around the house and take my wife on a trip somewhere sunny where we can relax.”

Reeves says it was hard to believe he won big. “I feel good – this is awesome. It feels real now.”

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 Sam’s Food Store & Smoker Discount on Hunt Street in Ajax.
