Joe Wells and Patricia Becket of Windsor matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the July 19, 2022 Lotto Max draw to win $100,000.  They also won $4 on another one of their Encore selections, bringing their total winnings to $100,004.

“We’ve been playing the lottery forever – almost 30 years,” shared Wells while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up their winnings.

Wells said he thought something was wrong with his phone when he checked his ticket using the OLG App. “I told Patricia about the win first,” he said. “She couldn’t believe it – she was in disbelief!”

“It hasn’t sunk in yet. I still keep asking myself if I’m dreaming,” said Becket.

The common-law couple plan to pay some bills and go on vacation with their winnings.

The winning ticket was purchased at Hasty Market on Tecumseh Road in Windsor.
