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.
