$100,000 lotto win for trio from Sturgeon Falls

Three friends and former co-workers from Sturgeon Falls are sharing $100,000.

James Rapp, Jean Leblanc and Zak Leblanc won the money when they matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in the exact order in the December 9, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.

OLG says the trio work in construction and have been playing the lottery together since last June.

“We always play the same numbers – a combination of our ages, dates of birth and number of kids we each have,” says Jean.

James checked their ticket and thought they only won $100.

“When I handed it to the cashier, and OLG called, I found out we won $100,000. I went over to Zak’s right after,” he says.

“I asked him if it was real, even though I knew it was,” says Zak. “I was just so happy and excited!”

“We went for beers to celebrate,” adds James.

The three have various spending plans which include a trip to Cuba, paying bills, and home renovations.

The winning ticket was purchased at Canco on Beaucage Park Road in North Bay.
