A St. Catharines woman couldn’t believe her lotto luck and stood there at the ticket checker counting all the zeros to be sure.
Tanya Walsh of St. Catharines matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the December 1 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.
Walsh, 56, said she’s been playing the lottery for 20 years and while her favourite games are LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX, “I always add ENCORE!” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
At the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings, she said she was on her way to work when she stopped at the gas station to check her tickets. “When I saw Big Winner appear, I stood there stunned counting the zeroes. I was shocked and felt like I was in a daze for the rest of the day!”
She plans to use her winnings to build a cottage. “I’ve been dreaming of this cottage for a long time!” she smiled.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Glendale Avenue in St. Catharines.
