Pablo Herrero Jimenez of Oakville has just won $100,000 after matching the last six of seven Encore numbers in the exact order in the Nov. 25, 2022, Lotto Max draw.

Jimenez told OLG he is a regular lottery player and normally plays Lotto Max and Encore.

“When I discovered my win, I was completely speechless,” Jimenez told OLG. “I went out to my car, so I had a private place to scream! I was so excited in that moment.”

Jimenez told OLG he called his mother, who lives in Spain, to share the big news but she thought he was joking.

“I went to visit my mom in Spain to prove to her I won in person,” he said. “I’m the second in my family to win the lottery – my uncle, who lives in Spain has won before.”

Since he has already travelled to Spain to visit his mother after discovering his win, Jimenez told OLG he will be putting the rest into the bank.

The winning ticket was purchased at Shell on Rebecca St. in Oakville.
