Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Roy Frood of Garson. Roy matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the July 17, 2020 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000.

Roy, a 41-year-old married father, said he’s a regular lottery player – usually playing LOTTO MAX. 

“I always add ENCORE,” he said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. The hydro worker said he checked his ticket at the store. 

“I was very surprised and excited when I found out I won! My wife was just as surprised when I shared the news with her.”

Roy said he plans to set aside his windfall for his children’s future.

“I really appreciate this win – I feel very fortunate to have won this amount,” he said. 

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.
