Strathroy, Ont. resident says yes to Encore, winning $100,000

One lucky Strathroy resident named James Campbell won Lotto 6/49 jackpot worth $100,000 by choosing Encore option and matching the last six of seven number in exact order.

The winning ticket was sold at The Real Canadian Superstore on Victoria Street in Strathroy. The store will receive a bonus of $1,000 for selling the winning scratch-Off ticket. 

Campbell said his family and friends were all very happy for him, and shocked when he shared the news.

He plans to save and invest his winning amount.

Lotto 6/49 is one of three national lottery games in Canada. Lotto 6/49 led to the gradual phase-out of that type of lottery game in Canada.

Winning numbers are drawn by the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation (ILC) every Wednesday and Saturday, executed with a random number generator.
