Robert Aubin of Sudbury wins $100,000! with LOTTO MAX


TORONTO, ON – Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Robert Aubin of Sudbury. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the August 23, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000!

The 45-year-old says this is his first major win. "I play LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49 weekly," he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his big cheque.

Robert checked his ticket using the OLG App and says he had to scan it about eight times before believing he was a winner. "I just couldn't believe it. I felt very blessed," he smiled. "My wife and father were the first people I told. My wife didn't believe me, and my father was in shock!"

Robert plans to pay some bills, buy a car, and save his winnings. "It's an overwhelming feeling and it still hasn't set in," he concluded.

ENCORE offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an ENCORE draw every day.
