$1 Turns Into $100,000: Cobourg Resident Celebrating $100,000 ENCORE Win

In Local

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Dawn Gleason of Cobourg. She matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the October 28, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000!

Dawn, 66, says she plays the lottery weekly and always says yes to ENCORE. “I checked my ticket using the OLG App and I couldn’t believe it. I originally thought it was a $100 win but then I noticed a few more zeroes,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

Dawn says this win is shocking and amazing. “It’s euphoric,” she smiled.

She is planning to pay some bills, invest some of her win and go on a trip to Mexico.

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.
