A Ramara couple turned $1 into $100,000 with a recent lottery win.
Dona and James Grills matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the March 13 LOTTO 6/49 draw to claim the prize.
The married couple have been regular lottery players for 40 years
“Our favourite games are LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX and we always play ENCORE,” they shared.
Dona said discovered the big win when she checked her lottery ticket at home.
“I noticed the ENCORE numbers were matching and my eyes were getting bigger with each matching number,” she said with a laugh
“I woke James up from his nap and said ‘Honey, you have to get up right now I think we won some money!'”
Dona and James, both retired from the automotive industry, plan to use their money to fix up their new house and purchase some new appliances.
“We’re smiling ear to ear,” James said.
The winning ticket was purchased at Canoe Fresh Food Market on Muskoka Street in Washago.
