Garden River Resident Wins $100,000

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Darcy Lesage of Garden River. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the January 31, 2024 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000!

Darcy, 64, says he always ensures he adds ENCORE on his LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX tickets. “I typically check my tickets when I have a stack to check – but this time I didn’t wait,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I checked my ticket on the OLG app and heard the winning tune. I wondered if it was real!”

Darcy said he got his wife to take a second look at the app and they were both in shock. “She was concerned it was a scam. We brought it to the store to make sure it was real – even the clerk was excited,” he smiled.

“My friends and family have been so supportive and celebratory. This is awesome and I feel thankful.”

He plans to use his win to pay off this truck and travel with family to enjoy some adventures together.

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 Shoppers Drug Mart on Bass Pro Mills Drive in Concord.
