It didn't take Lady Luck long to find a Leamington restaurant owner.

John Phan began playing the lottery at the beginning of April and on the 10th he hit the ENCORE jackpot matching six of seven numbers to win $100,000.

The 38-year-old says he was so excited he began to cry and when he called his parents to share the news they started crying too.

Phan plans to use his winnings to pay off his mortgage and invest in his restaurant stating, "It’s such a huge blessing at a critical time for my business which has been hit hard with the pandemic restrictions."

The winning ticket was purchased at Sam's Snack N' Go on Talbot St. in Leamington.
