Frank Ostrogonac of Windsor matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the January 29, 2021 Lotto Max draw to win $100,000.  He also won a combined $4 on two other Encore draws on the same ticket bringing his total winnings to $100,004.

Ostrogonac, a skilled tradesman, said he was sitting at the breakfast table checking his ticket when he realized he had matching encore numbers. “At first, I thought I won $2, then $10 – when I noticed I matched six numbers, I couldn’t believe my eyes,” he shared. “I knew I won some money but didn’t know how much until I went online. I was flabbergasted!”

Ostrogonac has some special plans for his winnings. “My wife and I have a milestone anniversary coming up this year, which is a great reason to do something big!” he smiled.

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Tecumseh Road in Windsor.
