Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Deborah Scott of Whitby, who matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the November 27 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Scott, a 50-year-old married mother, said she is an occasional lottery player. “I like to play when the jackpot is large or there is a milestone occasion,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

Deborah said she received an early morning email from OLG. “I couldn’t believe my eyes! It woke me up very quickly,” she said.

She plans to put her winnings toward retirement. “It’s just fantastic – a great feeling after two years of COVID,” she said.

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.
