$1,000,000Two millionaires in two months at Provigo Robert Lafond

Montréal, July 24, 2017 – Selling a winning ticket for the jackpot is a stroke of sheer luck for a retailer. Imagine doing it twice in two months, making for yet another millionaire! This is exactly what happened at Provigo Robert Lafond located in Sherbrooke. After selling the Lotto Max that won the $55,000,000 jackpot at the June 2 draw, the store sold the winning ticket of the Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed Prize drawn last Saturday night.


Estrie resident Daniel Lalime purchased his Lotto 6/49 at the lucky supermarket and pocketed $1,000,000 at the draw of July 22.
