Carmen Linwood of Tecumseh matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the August 16th, 2022 Lotto Max draw to win $100,000.

Linwood , a 65-year-old mother of two and grandmother of five, said when she checked her ticket on the OLG App, she couldn’t believe it. “I couldn’t scream because my grandkids were sleeping so I had to do a silent dance!” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings. “I’ve had many sleepless nights since then.”

She said she woke up her husband to tell him about the big win. “It took him a while to understand what I was saying. He couldn’t believe it either!”

Plans for her new-found fortune include paying some bills, sharing with family, and taking a vacation.

The winning ticket was purchased at London Husky Travel Centre on Westchester Bourne in Belmont.
