There’s one St. Catharines couple that’s happy they always add ENCORE onto their lottery tickets.

Charles and Constance Leaver matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the October 9 LOTTO 6/49 draw to collect a quick $100,000!

As it turned out, the couple, who are regular lottery players, had an extra reason to give thanks this Thanksgiving.

“We were going to our son’s house for Thanksgiving dinner and checked our ticket before we left. We couldn’t believe it!” said Constance while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings. “We’re still in shock!”

The retired great-grandparents said they plan to complete some home renovations and purchase some gifts for their family.

The winning ticket was purchased at Giant Tiger on Scott Street in St. Catharines.
