Otterville’s Perry Coudenys plans to reconnect with family overseas after winning $100,000 with Encore’s Sept. 9 draw.
“I am whisking my wife off to Europe,” he said in a news release. “I have family in Belgium, though I have never had the chance to visit. We’ll tour the countryside and learn more about my family’s history.”
Perry purchased the winning ticket at Mac’s on Stover Street in Norwich.
“Sometimes I’ll win a free olay or a few bucks but this time was different,” he said at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto. “When I saw those extra zeroes on the slip, I had to scan it a couple more times to be sure.”
Coudenys said he was excited to share the news.
“I called and left my wife a message on her phone since she was working,” he explained. “She called me back quite quickly because she thought something was wrong. But I got to tell her, ‘We won big.’”
