Local Allenford resident wins twice on ENCORE

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Darrall Wesley of Allenford. Darrall matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 18, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000! Darrall also won $4 on a second ENCORE selection, bringing his total winnings to $100,004!

Darrall says he plays the lottery often. “I enjoy playing when the jackpots are big and I love to play ENCORE,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

Darrall, a business owner, played his ticket while at his cottage. “I was checking a pile of tickets using the OLG App and heard a weird noise. I had to check it a few more times!”

The father of four boys told his girlfriend about his win right away. “She couldn’t believe it. I sent pictures to my family and they’re so happy for me,” he smiled.

Darrall says he feels relieved with his win. “I bought my brother a truck and I plan to put this win away for my boys,” he concluded.

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.
