CORNWALL, Ontario - She's 100,000 reason to get up with a smile this morning.
Cornwall resident Reshma Yasmin only plays Encore once in awhile, so when she bought her Lotto 6/49 ticket for the Feb. 23 draw, she decided to take a chance on Encore.
Good thing she did, because her numbers came up and she won a top prize of $100,000.
“I only play once in awhile, and I’m really glad I purchased Encore this time,” said Yasmin, a 43-year old warehouse employee. “I was crying when I discovered how much I had won!”
Encore can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1.
Yasmin, a married mother of three, plans to take a vacation and purchase a new vehicle with her windfall.
The winning ticket was purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart on Water Street in Cornwall.
