Montreal Gagnant à Vie Winner’s Phone Froze Upon Major CA$1K a Week Win

Lottery prizes of all shapes and sizes have recently made their way to their winners hailing from all provinces of Canada. Both instant games and the popular weekly draws attract the attention and some winners are quick to receive their prizes.

One of the newest winners is Helene Rancourt of Estrie, Quebec who claimed a CA$40,000 prize thanks to the Mots Caches Casino scratch ticket. This month has been progressively generous when it comes to lottery jackpots and there is something in the air, making lottery winners claim their prizes as quickly as possible.

There have also been players that are only now mustering the courage to beg their windfall following months of postponing. Estrie has proven to be a city of winners over the past few weeks, with the latest one bagging the CA$40,000 prize. La Poule aux Oeufs d‘Or also sent some CA$26,000 Estrie’s way.

Lottery Jackpots Galore in Quebec

The popular lottery offering granted two players with the hefty prize hat would now change their lives for good. Huguette Arguin Viens and France Viens had the opportunity to see themselves on TV, as they purchased the special CA$2, CA$3, or CA$5 ticket with the golden eggs.

It offers instant prizes for many lottery enthusiasts, but it also could elevate the experience in real life with the televised game. Another couple of Lanaudiere recently received some CA$59,000 once again thanks to the generous hen with the golden eggs.

Cecile Parent and Gerard Matte would forever remember this month as a special one, as it made them much richer and allowed them to plan brave projects for the foreseeable future. This month also changed one young player’s life, as Jason Bernier is now eligible for CA$1,000 a week for the rest of his life.

The lucky young man purchased his winning Gagnant a Vie ticket online through the Loto-Quebec mobile app. Mobile gaming is on a surge especially in Quebec, targeting a younger demographic while making sure their gaming habits remain healthy.

Winners Claim Millions

The mobile app allowed Mr. Bernier to scratch the online instant lottery ticket and find out that he is, in fact, a winner now. The special prize guarantees him a hefty cheque every single week from here until the end of his life, promising a considerable financial cushion he could rely on. In his state of surprise, he did something to his phone and it completely froze, but upon contacting Loto-Quebec, Mr. Bernier learned that he is still eligible for the major windfall.

Another lucky player of Quebec recently received their Guaranteed CA$1,000,000 Prize after a free entry Lotto 6/49 ticket. Yves Couture hailing from the Capitale-Nationale region had the opportunity to have free entry at the Lotto 6/49, as his first ticket did not feature a cash prize. This second chance resulted in a hefty windfall, but he was not expecting it.

Checking the tickets on a regular basis is not Mr. Couture’s forte, so he validated several tickets at once. The windfall would be invested in various renovation projects around the family home. Couche-Tard in L’Ancienne-Lorette will receive a commission of CA$10,000, the equivalent to one percent of the prize.
