Rayel Poitras of Orillia and Lisa-Rae Scott of Sutton West are celebrating after winning $1 million with ENCORE!!
The pair matched all seven of the winning numbers on their ENCORE selection for the February 25th draw.
51 year old Rayel and 44 year old Lisa-Rae have been together for a decade and Rayel said,
“ I scanned my ticket in the ticket checker and surely enough, the words, ‘Big Winner – $1,000,000’ appeared on the screen.”
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I didn’t want to cause a scene at the gas station so I paid and went straight to the car to share the good news with Lisa-Rae. I told her, ‘I think we won $1 million!’ and she said, ‘Oh my God, are you sure?’”
“After checking multiple times we picked up some take out and a bottle of bubbly and drove over to see Lisa-Rae’s parents where we shared the good news.”
They plan on using the money to finally buy a home, putting some aside for their kids education and teat themselves to a new car or maybe go on vacation.
The winning ticket was purchased at Riveredge Convenience on The Queensway in Keswick.
