Taking the advice that your wife gives you is often a good idea. It certainly was for Fryderyk Jarema from Alliston in Ontario, Canada as it led to a $1,000,002 win in the Lotto 6/49 Encore draw held on August 11.
Mr Jarema is a regular player of the Lotto 6/49 and Lotto Max draws and when collecting the winner’s cheque, he laughed, “My wife always insists I get Encore.” It’s a good job he took the advice as his ticket managed to match all seven Lotto 6/49 Encore numbers in exact order to win $1m. Another one of his Encore selections won an extra $2. A family from Ireland won €5,000 playing EuroMillions and then won a further €1m in the Ireland Only Raffle.
The 67-year-old father and grandfather didn’t find out about the win until he checked the OLG Lottery App the day after the Lotto 6/49 Encore draw. “We were in shock, I had to go to the store to confirm the win – it’s amazing, we are overjoyed, and still in disbelief,” said the Encore winner. It’s the latest big win in Ontario after Joshua Allison won a $68,203.10 Lotto 6/49 prize in the August 18 draw. Celebrating even more was Barry Combdon who scooped a $10m Lotto Max jackpot on August 3.
Fryderyk was a teacher for 33 years but has now retired. Recently we told you of Jean Bibby from England who won £30,000 in the People’s Postcode Lottery two days after she retired from her job. He already has some plans on how to spend the $1,000,002 Lotto 6/49 Encore winnings and It’s good news for his family as he and his wife want to share their winnings with their family. “This win gives us more money to share with our kids and grandchildren,” he said.
The Lotto 6/49 Encore winner has been married to his wife for 42 years and probably received lots of good advice in that time. She’s also due to be retiring soon and the couple plan to go on holiday “at some point.” That’s like the syndicate of Irish players who recently won €278,540 playing EuroMillions. Jefremar and Lucille Estoque, from Red Deer in the Rocky Mountain province on Alberta, Canada, won a $100,000 Lotto Max prize and plan to go on holiday to Hawaii.
The Lotto 6/49 Encore winner’s ticket was purchased from Lukie’s Convenience store in Alliston. The numbers that made them lottery millionaires in the August 11 Lotto 6/49 Encore draw were 6742235.
