Douro Resident Goes Comfortably Numb After Winning $100,000 Playing Encore

Fifty-nine-year-old Douro carpenter Louis Prins says he went “numb” when he realized he had won $100,000 with ENCORE (May 17th LOTTO MAX draw). "I was at the store picking up bread and milk when I checked my ticket," he laughs.

Louis matched six of the seven ENCOREnumbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize. "I play LOTTARIO, LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX—this is my first big win," says Louis.

Louis plans on using his winnings to complete some home renovations, buy a truck and a four-wheeler. "It feels really awesome to get this kind of money," he says.
