Encore Winner

SUDBURY – A Free Play turned into a big win for Azilda resident Robert Poirier.

Poirier matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in the July 6 Lottario draw to win $100,000.

"I was just gassing up one day when I decided to check my ticket," said Robert, "I had to scan it twice just to make sure!"

The married 34-year-old works as a manager at a pharmacy, and plans to invest his windfall in his daughter's future.

The winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Kingsway in Sudbury.
