TORONTO — Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Long Sault resident Judy Peddle, who matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the Nov. 4 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.
A 66-year-old, grandmother, Peddle said she’s been a regular lottery player for years. “I’ve only recently started adding ENCORE,” she admitted, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
She was at home when she scanned her ticket using the OLG Lottery App. “I thought it was a mistake, so I had my husband scan it as well. We both thought there was some kind of error.”
Carrying on with preparing dinner, Peddle laughed and observed, “Presumably, I just won all this money and here we are eating a hamburger with green peppers.
“The next night we had a nice steak dinner.”
The winner, who bought the ticket at Winchester Foodland, said she will use the money to enjoy retirement.
