- Jouko Vahakuopus of Alliston won
$100,000 with ENCORE in the October 8, 2016 ONTARIO 49 draw. "I checked
my numbers the day after the draw. I went to a nearby store and scanned
my ticket at the ticket checker. I didn't have my glasses on so I
couldn't make out what was flashing on the screen. As soon as the
ticket was fed into the machine, the words 'Big Winner' flashed on the
screen. The retailer was very happy for me and said that OLG will be
calling the store shortly to speak with me. That is when I found out I
won $100,000." He headed home to tell his wife, "but she didn't believe
me. I had to show her the validation slip and she was speechless. I
have no words to describe how happy we both felt." The winning ticket
