TORONTO – Congratulations to Keith Jacobs and Cassandra Clement of South Porcupine for winning $100,000 with Encore (March 14, 2019 Daily Grand – evening draw).  The pair matched six of the seven Encore numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize.

“We are still in disbelief!” said Keith a 48-year-old millwright, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings. “We enjoy playing Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49 and Daily Grand.”

The couple was shopping for groceries when they stopped to scan their ticket and discovered their windfall. “We thought the machine wasn’t working,” laughed Cassandra, a 47-year-old book keeper. “It feels like a reset to life!”

The parents of three and grandparents of four plan on paying bills, doing home renovations and having a nice dinner with family.

Encore can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1. There is an Encore draw every day.

The winning ticket was purchased at Your Independent Grocery on Algonquin Boulevard in Timmins.
