Kevin Butler won $100,000 by matching six of seven Encore numbers in exact order.

Saying “yes” to Encore paid off for Kevin Butler of Guelph. He matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the Oct. 12, 2022 Ontario 49 draw to win $100,000!

Kevin, 61, said he’s been playing the lottery for 30 years. “I play my own numbers comprised of birthdays. I always add Encore,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.

The father of one said when he used the OLG App to scan his ticket he was shocked. “I kept scanning it to believe it then I woke up my wife to tell her. She thought I was lying and did not believe me.”

Kevin plans to pay off his mortgage, pay off his car and travel. “It’s exhilarating – a heart pumping experience,” he said.

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.
