Saying “yes” to ENCORE has paid off for Beatrice Burdey of Oshawa.

Burdey, a regular lottery player who always plays ENCORE, matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 30 ONTARIO 49 draw to win a cool $1 million.

“When I brought my ticket to the retailer, I think he was more excited than I was!” she laughed. “It didn’t feel real.”

The mother and grandmother said she plans to invest, share with family, and plan a family vacation. “It’s unbelievable!”

The winning ticket was purchased at Sobeys on Wilson Road in Oshawa.
