Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for Adam Samms of Kilworthy. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the June 1, 2021 LOTTO MAX draw to win $100,000!

Adam says LOTTO MAX is his favourite lottery game and he always plays ENCORE.

The 41-year-old says his dad is the one who discovered his big win. “I was preoccupied with something else at the time and thought, ‘Yeah, right!’ until I got home later and checked the ticket myself,” he shared. “My mom cried tears of joy!”

Adam, who works in the recycling industry, plans to pay some bills, do some repairs on his truck and take care of his parents with his winnings.

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.
