‘Happier instances forward’ for Victoria Harbor man after $100Okay lottery win

‘We’re planning a road trip to Newfoundland in the summer,’ says 38-year-old father and regular lottery player who always adds Encore

TORONTO – Saying “yes” to Encore paid off for Brian Twyne of Victoria Harbour. He matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the Feb. 11, 2022 Lotto Max draw to win $100,000!

Brian, a 38-year-old father, said he’s a regular lottery player who always adds Encore. “I was helped asleep when I checked my ticket on the OLG App. I noticed the screen looked different and then started counting the zeroes,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Center in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “After the third time scanning it, I showed my wife. She screamed with joy – it was a great way to wake up!”

Brian said this win comes at a perfect time for his family. “We’ve been impacted by the pandemic, so this means some happier times ahead.”

He plans to complete some work around the house, save some, and travel with his family. “We’re planning a road trip to Newfoundland in the summer,” he smiled.

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.
