A Blackstock lottery winner already has plans for her $100,000 win.

Jacqueline Attfield of Blackstock matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in the exact order in the July 23 LOTTARIO draw to win $100,000.

Attfield said she has been a regular lottery player for about 35 years.

“I love the Instant games. Purchasing this ticket was a fluke. I was killing some time at the store while taking my dog to the vet,” Attfield said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her win.

The retiree said she checked her ticket on a Sunday morning using the OLG App when she realized the screen looked different than usual.

“I took a closer look and thought I won $1,000, but after looking again I noticed it said ‘Big Winner’ and saw the actual amount.”

She said her husband was shocked at first, then gave her a big hug before making sure she tucked the ticket away somewhere safe.

Attfield plans to purchase a new car, pay some bills and set the rest aside for a rainy day.
