Milton resident wins $100,000

Trevor Green of Milton struck it lucky by saying "yes" to ENCORE. Trevor matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in the exact order in the ONTARIO 49 draw, winning an impressive $100,000.

Trevor, a construction worker, regularly plays ONTARIO 49 and always adds ENCORE to his tickets, including the Free Play that led to his big win. "I didn't have my glasses on when I scanned my ticket on my phone, so I thought I had won $100," he recounted while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to collect his prize.

"When I checked it again at the store, I heard the winning tune and thought, 'All this for $100?' It was then I realized I had won big!"

"When I told my mother, I think she was more energetic than I was," he said with a smile. "I have no words to describe this feeling. I have just started planning what to do with my win and hope to double it," he added.

Trevor plans to invest his winnings and share them with his mother and sister.

ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played with most lottery games for an extra $1. There are two ENCORE draws every day. The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Steeles Avenue in Milton.
