WINDSOR, ONT. -- Essex parents plan to buy a new car with their $100,000 Encore winnings.
Steven and Juanita Renaud of Essex matched the last six of seven Encore number s in exact order in the May 12, Lotto Max draw to win $100,000, an OLG news release states.
The pair discovered their win when Steven was checking his ticket on the OLG website.
“I realized that I had matched all the numbers but one,” he said, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their cheque. “I was very shocked, so I used the OLG Lottery App on my tablet to check my ticket. We were both in disbelief!”
The parents of one hope to pay bills and purchase a new vehicle, “we already know what we have our eyes on.”
“We both feel the same way – we’re very happy for this win,” they said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Piggy Mart Convenience on Talbot Street in Essex.
