A round of golf can often be entertaining, but it was what happened afterwards that delighted Adelard Savoie from Hanmer in Canada, when he discovered a $100,000 Encore win in the June 28 Lotto 6/49 draw.
The lucky winner spends the summer months in northern Ontario and loves playing golf. He and his wife had just played a round and on their way back home stopped off at a store to check the results of the Lotto 6/49 draw. Recently we told you of a golf fanatic from Ontario who won a $30m Lotto 6/49 jackpot.
There were a few tickets to check the result of and as is often the case, it was the last one to be checked that proved to be the big winner. Having had a few losers, Adelard wasn’t exactly confident of getting a winner and recalled that he scanned his final ticket and “I expected to toss it in the trash. “
That most certainly wasn’t the case though as those magic words ‘Big Winner’ appeared on the screen. He re-scanned the Lotto 6/49 ticket and was shocked to see the amount ‘$100,000’. It’s the latest big win in Ontario after Giuseppe di Mambro won a $100,000 Lotto Max Encore prize earlier this month. Also celebrating was Olga Righetti after she scooped $1m playing Lotto 6/49.
The happy couple still had to make their way back to their trailer and it was a journey that was described as “surreal “as they wondered to themselves, “did we really win? How is this possible?” Savoie added that he’d wondered for years what it would be like to win a big Lotto 6/49 prize and now he knows.
The Lotto 6/49 winners already know how they’ll be spending their winnings. “We are travellers. We live away all winter and make plans as often as possible for the next great adventure”. Matt Myles from England is on an around-the-world trip after he won £1m playing EuroMillions.
The Lotto 6/49 winners have previously been to China and Europe and now this win will allow them to check off some places on their bucket list. That includes South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. “All that might cost a lot of money and Adelard joked, “Come to think of it, we may need to win again.” Perhaps they need the luck of the Fry family in Scotland, who have had three £1m UK Lotto wins.
