Kincardine resident celebrates Encore win

Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Kirk Rutledge of Kincardine. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 14, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000!

Kirk, a 65-year-old father of three and grandfather of one, said this is his first big win. “My wife scanned my ticket on the OLG App early one morning. I was half asleep, so it felt unreal,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque.

Kirk said he doesn’t know what he is going to do with his windfall yet. “I’m going to pay some bills for now,” 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.
