Meet The Sault’s Newest Millionaire

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Donald (Don) MacMillan of Sault Ste. Marie. He matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the December 19, 2023 LOTTO MAX draw to win $1 million!

Don, 39, said he’s been a regular lottery player for over 10 years and plays his dad’s numbers from the last Super 7 ticket his dad purchased years ago.

“I was at home one morning having coffee with my mom when I checked my ticket on the OLG app. I saw the zeroes and at first glance I thought I won $100,000, then I noticed the additional zero. I was shaking and vibrating from the shock and disbelief,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

Don shared the news with his mom, dad and sister and they were all so happy. “I’ll never forget that day – it was so heartwarming.”

He plans to invest and treat his family with his windfall. “This win is all about my family. I’m blessed to have them and blessed to have this win.”

“It’s been a very surreal experience that has been completely unbelievable and so cool. All the possibilities that come with a win like this are so exciting,” he 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 Urban Square IDA on Trunk Road in Sault Ste. Marie.
