$100,000 win for Rockland woman
Suzanne Champagne of Rockland, recently won $100,000 with ENCORE (October 5, 2018 LOTTO MAX draw).
She matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize. “I play LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 with ENCORE regularly – this is my first big win!” shared Suzanne, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.
The 61-year old recently retired National Defense employee headed to the lottery retailer to check a stack of old tickets. “As I went through them, I saw ‘Big Winner’ come up and thought I won $10,000. I didn’t even think that was true!” she laughed.
The married, mother of two girls plans on buying back the family cottage and enjoying her newfound retirement at the cottage. “It feels really nice!” she admitted. The winning ticket was purchased at Giant Tiger on Laurier Street in Rockland.
