Windsor Great Grandfather Wins Big With Encore
A great-grandfather from Windsor, who has played the lottery for 25 years, finally hit it big.
Glen Thomson matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize.
The retired military truck driver checked the numbers online before heading out for the day.
"I didn't think I won anything", said Thomson, "but something told me to hang on to the ticket."
The father, grandfather and great-grandfather has big plans for his winnings.
"We vacation frequently so there will be some travelling in the future and we will be sharing with the family."
Thomson adds, "We have worked so hard our whole lives, so this is a real shock."
