A Sioux Lookout resident is $100,000 richer following a $1 bet.

Patricia Beaudoin matched the last six of seven ENCORE numbers in the exact order in the January 8, 2022, LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000.

Beaudoin says she thought at first there was an error with the machine at the store.

"I checked it three times and the store clerk noticed I was taking a while, so she came over to help me out," said Beaudoin in a prepared release from OLG.

"I told my husband about the big win, but he didn't believe me at first," Beaudoin laughed. "He thought I was kidding until now!"

Beaudoin plans of sharing the winnings with her family and possibly doing some interior updates to her home.

The winning ticket was purchased at Sioux Lottery Centre on Front Street in Sioux Lookout.
