Trinh Tran checked her numbers. She checked them again. Then again just to verify her good fortune.
Finally, the Vaughan resident was satisfied her Encore ticket for the Aug. 21 Lotto 649 draw was worth a major prize.
“I kept scanning it hoping it was true,” said Tran, who was at the supermarket when she learned the final six of seven numbers on her ticket matched in order for a $100,000 prize. “I was with my family, so I showed them. We were all surprised.”
Tran plans to save her winnings and purchase a home.
“I’m happy,” said the factory worker as she collected her winnings Oct. 8 at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “This is very exciting.”
The winning ticket was purchased at Kitchen Food Fair on Rutherford Road in Concord.
