Encore is a lottery played only in Ontario, Canada. A 7 digit number is drawn. Matching all 7 digits pays $1 million. Matching some of the digits pays secondary prizes.

The Jan 7 draw produced the following number:

9999979

Good luck,
Jake

    Too bad you can't pick your own numbers. I don't know why more lotteries just offer these speil type games as stand-alone daily games. You'll have your Pick 3, your Pick 4, and your Pick 7.

      When did Encore started in Ontario Jake649? Is it possible to have two or more tickets with the same numbers? What would had happen if those two or more tickets have the same numbers and should match all 7 digits in the game?

        1. Several years ago. I do not remember when. The Encore number changed from a 6 digit number to a 7 digit number last year.

        2. Yes, two or more tickets can have the same number. The central computer tries to assign a unique number to each ticket. When it was a 6 digit number, it was common for duplicates since there are only 1 million unique 6 digit numbers.

        3. The Encore game is not pari-mutuel. If two tickets have the same Encore number and they win, they both win $1 million.

         

        Good luck,
        Jake

          Jake,

           

          In Atlantic Canada we have the tag which is the same as encore with the 649 lottery. The top prize for the tag is $ 100,000. It would be great if it was worth a million dollars like the encore.
