TORONTO – Saying “yes” to Encore paid off for Anthony Block of Paisley.
Block matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the Dec. 26, 2020 Lotto 6/49 draw to win $100,000.
“I started playing the lottery more during the pandemic,” shared Block. “I love the convenience of purchasing tickets online.”
The 63-year-old retired salesman says he was in disbelief after checking his email and discovering his big win.
“I didn’t believe it initially. I was very happy!”
The father and grandfather said he told his girlfriend about his big win right away.
“She was happy for me,” he said.
He plans to renovate his home and enjoy a new kitchen with his winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased on OLG.ca.
