A retired casino dealer was on the receiving end of a big score recently when she matched the last six numbers on the May 5 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000.

Niki Bainbridge said she loves all lottery games. “This isn’t my first win, but it’s my biggest by far.”

The 76 year-old woke up early one morning and called the OLG WIN line to check the winning numbers. That’s when she discovered she was $100,000 richer.

“I told my family, but no one believed me!” she shared at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her windfall. “Eventually they did, and everyone was so happy for me.”

She is considering sharing some of her winnings with family and friends and will purchase a bigger TV. “This win feels incredible.”

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 Fisher’s Your Independent Grocer on Beaver Avenue in Beaverton.
