A Simcoe teacher has won $100,000 with his $1 Encore purchase on his Lotto Max ticket.
Paul MacCormack, a married father of two, purchased his ticket online and found out about winning through an email.
“I got an email and when I logged into PlayOLG.ca I realized I won,” he said in a press release. “It was shocking and a good way to start the day.”
The teacher of 30 years told his wife about the win right away.
“She was the only one home with me at the time. I asked her to check on the website and confirm that I had won,” he said. “I texted my children later that day and they thought I was joking.”
MacCormack plans to pay off bills and make some renovations to his home with his winnings.
