The OLG has announced that Courtney Hall (pictured) and Dana Hall of Kingston were $100,000 Encore winners in a recent Lotto Max draw.
Paying the extra dollar for Encore when purchasing their main draw ticket paid off when it matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the April 8, 2022 draw.
The winning pair purchased their ticket at Circle K on Bath Road here in Kingston.
ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1 with an ENCORE draw made every day.
