Marguerite Langlois of Amherstburg matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the June 27th, 2022 Daily Grand draw to win $100,000.

Langlois said she checked the winnings numbers online and couldn’t believe what she saw, so she waited until the store opened to have her ticket validated. “I couldn’t talk – that was my first reaction,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I tried to call my husband, but the line was busy, so I called my son. I couldn’t wait to tell someone!”

The 72-year-old mother of three and grandmother of six said other than helping her kids, she doesn’t have anything special planned with her winnings. “I want to help my grandson with his baseball training and help the other grandchildren with their education,” she concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Downtown Espresso Café on Dalhousie Street in Amherstburg.
