Kingston Resident Celebrates $100,000 ENCORE Win

Published on: 2022/08/12 - in Releases

RELEASE — Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Gordon Gibson of Kingston. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the July 15, 2022 DAILY KENO draw to win $100,000!

Gordon, a 75-year-old retiree, said he’s been a regular lottery player since the lottery started. “I typically play DAILY KENO, LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “I always add ENCORE.”

The father and grandfather said when he checked the winning numbers online and saw that his last six ENCORE numbers matched, he almost fell off his chair. “I had a couple of my friends over and they were overwhelmed with happiness for me.”

Gordon said his win took a few days to sink in. “I feel so happy – it’s a wonderful feeling.”

He plans to pay some bills, share with his son and sister, and put some aside for travel. “Maybe a road trip to PEI,” 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.
