Chatham woman wins $100,000

Saying ‘yes’ to ENCORE paid off for Geraldine Graham of Chatham.

OLG officials say Graham matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the February 1, 2020 LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Graham, a 58-year old married mother of one, discovered her win when she used a Ticket Checker at a retailer to scan her ticket.

“My eyes almost popped right out of my head,” Graham said in a media release.

“I ran to the car and told my son to pinch me. I thought my husband was going to drop on the floor when I told him.”

OLG officials say the part-time factory worker plans to invest her win and will buy a new chest-freezer for her home.

“Also, we’ve got a trip planned to New York City for the fall, so I’d like to book some theatre tickets and enjoy the best of what New York has to offer,” Graham added.

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.

The winning ticket was purchased at Charlie’s Variety Store on Park Avenue in Chatham.
