Wiarton winner cashes in on Encore

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Donald Standen of Wiarton. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the March 1, 2023 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000!

Donald, a father of two and grandfather of one, says he always plays ENCORE. “I decided to stop for gas on my way home from Guelph when I checked my ticket. I was very surprised,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I called my wife to tell her about the win and she didn’t believe me at first!”

Donald says this win feels good. “I’m happy. We will be able to do things we’ve been holding back on,” he smiled. “It gives us a bit of freedom.”

He is thinking about purchasing a boat and plans to put his win away for now.

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.

OLG supports safe play and wants to keep the fun in the game. That’s why OLG is proud to be a leader in promoting responsible gambling with our globally recognized PlaySmart program.

The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Main Street in Sauble Beach.
