A Mississauga man is celebrating a big lotto win.
OLG says that Roberto Bastone, 30, matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in the exact order in the November 5, 2020, Daily Grand draw to win $100,000.
“I’ve been playing the lottery since I was of age to,” Bastone told OLG. “This is my first major win!”
Bastone’s Encore ticket was gifted to him from his mother. He discovered his big win while using the OLG Lottery App.
“I had to double-check because I was in disbelief,” he told OLG
Bastone, a policy officer, told his parents about his big win immediately.
“They couldn’t believe it either! This provides me with some financial security. I may take a trip after the pandemic, but for now, I will save the money,” he said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on North Park Drive in Brampton.
