Acton mom wins $100,000 in Lotto Max draw

Jennifer Gezlen, a resident of Acton, has won $100,000 in Lotto Max draw after she matched the last six of seven Encore numbers in exact order.

The 46-year-old mother of two said she is a regular lottery player and always adds ENCORE.

“I checked my ticket on the OLG App and saw $100,000 – I scanned it again because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.

“I asked my boyfriend to take a second look to see if he saw the same as me.”

Jennifer, a caretaker, compares her winning feeling to being in a dream.

“I am going to help my children through school, pay some bills and save,” she concluded.

The winning ticket was purchased at Royal Jug City on Queen Street in Acton.

OLG is a crown agency that conducts and manages land-based gaming facilities; the sale of province-wide lottery games; Internet gaming; and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres.

All of OLG's proceeds are reinvested in Ontario.
