Saying “yes” to Encore paid off for Debra and Randy Barnes of Waubaushene.

They matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the Sept. 3 Lotto 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Debra and Randy, both 58, said they are regular players of the lottery and always add Encore.

“We scanned the ticket on the OLG App and saw Big Winner appear — we did not expect that at all,” shared Debra while at the OLG Prize Centre.

“We were both so surprised and excited,” added Randy.

The married couple said they told their daughters first, who were shocked that their parents won.

“I am still in disbelief that we really won $100,000,” said Debra. 

The pair plan to purchase a new truck and pay some bills.

Encore offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an Encore draw every day.
