Phahatkone  of Belle River matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order in the January 4th, 2023 Lotto 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Khamvongsa, 45, said when he brought his ticket to the store, he thought the cashier was joking when he said he won $100,000. “I couldn’t believe it – there was so much happiness,” he said. “My family and friends were so excited for me when I told them.”

The manufacturing worker said it’s hard to describe how he feels. “I’m so excited – there are no words.”

He plans to put his win toward a down payment on a home for the future. “I also want to visit my homeland, Laos. I haven’t been home since the pandemic,” he concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Mac’s on Tecumseh Road in Windsor.
