Toronto, ON – Ryan Simmonds of Oshawa is celebrating after winning $100,000 with ENCORE (February 3, 2016 LOTTO 6/49). Ryan matched six of seven winning numbers on his ENCORE selection.
“I was on a break at work and decided to head to the store to check a few tickets,” shared Ryan while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “When the words ‘Big Winner’ appeared on the ticket checker, I couldn’t believe it so I scanned it again and again!”
Ryan couldn’t keep the win to himself. “On my way back to work, I told my friends and family, and then my boss. They were all so happy for me. I work really hard and this win came at a great time.”
“I just started an apprenticeship program to become an auto mechanic, and need to buy all of my own tools. I usually juggle three or four jobs at a time to support myself, and now I can focus more on the learning, and not have to worry about paying for equipment,” he smiled.
Ryan also has big plans for the future. “My long term goal is to own my own home, so I will be putting aside some of this money for a down payment. I also plan to check off one of my bucket list items with a trip to Aruba. This win is such a blessing!” he concluded.
ENCORE can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.
The winning ticket was purchased at One Stop Trading on Park Road in Oshawa.
