Congratulations to John Hepburn of Cookstown after winning $100,000 with ENCORE (Feb. 12, 2016 Lotto Max). John matched six of seven winning numbers on his ENCORE selection.
“I checked my tickets a number of times before I realized I won,” Hepburn said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. “I was in disbelief. And when I told the retailer, even she didn’t believe me!”
The retiree is a regular LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX player. “I have been playing the same numbers since 1993.”
The 62-year-old father of two and grandfather of four, has some immediate plans for his big win. “I just bought a new truck. I will pay it off right away!” he smiled.
The winning ticket was purchased at Pioneer on Yonge Street in Barrie.
