A 74-year-old grandmother from Lincoln (Jordan township) matched all seven ENCORE numbers in the exact order from the August 14 LOTTO 6/49 draw, netting herself a cool $1 million.

Judith Prudhomme said she is a regular lottery player and always plays ENCORE.

“I looked up the winning numbers while I was making supper. I was in disbelief when I realized I won,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “When I told my husband, he knew I wasn’t joking because I was so excited!”

 Judith plans to invest and share her winnings with her children. “I’m going to enjoy my senior years worry-free!” she smiled.

 The winning ticket was purchased at All Ways Convenience on King Street in Vineland.
