An Acton mom is $100,000 richer after nailing the last six of seven Encore numbers in a recent draw.

Jennifer Genzler, a 46-year-old mother of two, won during the May 24, Lotto Max draw.

Genzler said she is a regular lottery player and always adds Encore.

“I checked my ticket on the OLG App and saw $100,000. I scanned it again because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

“I asked my boyfriend to take a second look to see if he saw the same as me.”

Genzler, a caretaker, compares her winning feeling to being in a dream.

“I’m going to help my children through school, pay some bills and save.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Royal Jug City on Queen Street in Acton.
