A Rockland resident is a $100,000 richer now, thanks to a winning lottery ticket.
Suzanne Champagne bought the ticket more than three months ago at the Giant Tiger store in Rockland for the October 5 Encore draw.
Just recently, she went to check a stack of old tickets and found out that she was a winner.
“As I went through them, I saw ‘big winner’ come up and thought I won $10,000. I didn’t even think that was true!” she said.
Champagne, a married, recently-retired mother of two daughters already has a plan for her windfall.
She’s going to buy back her family cottage and enjoy her retirement there.
Lottery ticket buyers can play Encore when they purchase a LOTTO MAX or LOTTO 6/49 ticket for $1.00 extra.
Champagne recently made the trip to Toronto to collect her prize money at Ontario Lottery and Gaming’s prize office.
