NEWS RELEASE

ONTARIO LOTTERY
AND GAMING CORP.

***************************
Sault Ste. Marie resident wins $100,000 in recent Encore draw

TORONTO - When Sault Ste Marie resident Timothy Gardiner read about two winning tickets sold in his community for the April 5, 2013 Lotto Max draw, he headed to his local lottery retailer to see if he was a winner.

That was when Timothy discovered he had won a $100,000 Encore prize with his ticket!

“I was in shock and so was my wife, Tracy!” smiled Gardiner while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim his prize. “It has taken a while for it to sink in.”

Encore can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1.

There is an Encore draw every day.

“This is going to be a great summer,” laughed the 30-year old. “Bring on the warm weather!”

Gardiner plans to pay off some bills and have a little fun with his new fortune.

The winning ticket was purchased at Muio’s Convenience Store on Queen Street in Sault Ste. Marie.

Ontario lottery players received $1.7 billion in prizes in the 2011/12 fiscal year.

OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities.

Since 1975, OLG lotteries, Casinos, Slots, and Resort Casinos have generated more than $36 billion for the benefit of the Province of Ontario.

Proceeds from OLG's operations help support Ontario's hospitals, amateur sport through the Quest For Gold program, recreational and cultural activities, communities, provincial priority programs such as health care and education, and local and provincial charities.
