Drayton resident a winner with an Encore

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Adam Surnoskie of Drayton. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the April 21, 2022 DAILY GRAND draw to win $100,000! He also won $4 on his DAILY GRAND selection, bringing his total winnings to $100,004.

Adam, a 36-year-old skilled tradesman, said he is a regular player of DAILY GRAND, LOTTO MAX and LOTTO 6/49. “I always add ENCORE!” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.

While at the gas station, Adam checked his ticket and saw Big Winner appear. “I doubted it immediately and checked it again, then handed it to the store clerk. When I saw the lottery terminal shut down it was surreal and exciting.”

Adam said when he told his wife she stared at him in disbelief. “Then she was thrilled! And we started discussing all the possibilities after a high five and big hug.”

He plans to put some of his winnings toward his house, will put some aside for future travel and invest for his children. “I keep smiling thinking about how this win will benefit my family,” 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.
