An Elliot Lake man is one of northern Ontario's latest lottery winners after winning $100,000 playing the Encore.

"The winning ticket was purchased at Foodland on Hillside Drive in Elliot Lake," Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation said in a news release.

"Encore offers 22 ways to win and can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is an Encore draw every day."
