Saying “yes” to Encore paid off for Dona Kretz of St. Catharines. Dona matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the Jan. 4, 2020 Lotto 6/49 draw to win $100,000!

"I checked my ticket twice because I couldn't believe it," shared Dona, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque. "I had my son check it, too. We were both in disbelief!"

The 70-year old plans to renovate her home and purchase new furniture. "I want to treat myself," she smiled.

"I'm in shock. I am so grateful," Dona 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.

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Niagara Street in St. Catharines.
