Richard Collins of Kitchener is celebrating after winning $100,000 with ENCORE (January 7, 2017 LOTTO 6/49). Richard matched six of seven winning numbers on his ENCORE selection.

“I enjoy playing LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX,” shared Richard while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “I always add an ENCORE play.”

 A few days following the draw, Richard and his wife, mother-in-law and aunt were out grabbing breakfast. “We decided to stop by the variety store next door to check my tickets. When I scanned my LOTTO 6/49 ticket in the ticket checker, the words ‘Big Winner’ flashed on the screen. The first thing I thought was, ‘This can’t be right. I never win anything.’”

The 69 year old father of two and grandfather of three rescanned his ticket several times. “Next, I asked the retailer to validate my ticket to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. That’s when I realized I was $100,000 richer! I went back to the car and shared the good news with everyone. My wife said, ‘Yeah, right!’”

Plans are now underway for Richard’s big win. “This win allows me to help out my kids, give some to a few family members and invest the rest. I have a pretty new car so I will be getting some winter tires for it for sure. I’m also planning a vacation to Scotland. Winning this money now gives me a stress free life. I don’t have to worry about finances and just enjoy my retirement with my wife of 38 years,” concluded Richard.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Victoria Street in Kitchener.
