Guelph Man Wins $100K in PICK-2 Encore
Saying “yes” to ENCORE paid off for David Connor of Guelph. He matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the August 2, 2023 PICK-2 draw to win $100,000! David also won $101 on his PICK-2 selections bringing his total winnings to $100,101.
David, a great grandfather, said he’s been a regular lottery player since the 1970s. He’s loyal to PICK-2 and PICK-3, and always says yes to ENCORE. “I like to play my favourite numbers,” he shared, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim his windfall.
The retiree checked this ticket at the store and uncovered his big win. “I couldn’t believe my eyes!” he recalled, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings. “The clerk scanned my ticket and said, ‘I can’t cash that here – it’s too much money.’ I thought I’d won $1,000!”
David called his daughter to share the good news. “She’s always helps me get my tickets when I’m not able to myself, so I had to tell her first. She was so happy for me!”
He plans to pay his bills, share with his children, and celebrate with a beer. David is a motorcycle crash survivor who also supports the Ride for Sight charity.
