Louis Prins of Douro won $100,000 in the Lotto Max draw on May 17, 2019.
He matched six of the seven Encore numbers in exact order to win the $100,000 prize.
The 59-year-old carpenter says he went “numb” when he realized he was a big winner.
“I was at the store picking up bread and milk when I checked my ticket,” he says. “I play Lottario, Lotto 6/49, and Lotto Max. This is my first big win.”
Prins says he plans to use his winnings to complete some home renovations and to buy a truck and a four-wheeler.
“It feels really awesome to get this kind of money,” he says.
Prins purchased his winning ticket at Steve’s Quik Chek Variety on Armour Road in Peterborough.
