Tanya Verkerk of Oro-Medonte is $100,000 richer after buying a winning lotto ticket in Orillia.
Tanya matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the January 7th LOTTO MAX draw.
This is a first-time major win for Tanya.
"I've been playing the lottery for about 20 years," said the 44-year old mother of two, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her cheque.
The school secretary discovered her win while checking her ticket on the OLG Lottery App.
"I couldn’t stop smiling," she laughed. "I couldn’t believe it!”
Tanya plans to pay some bills and take a trip with her sons.
The winning ticket was purchased at Circle K on Memorial Avenue in Orillia.
