Leprechaun's LuckOn Cloud 9 thanks to Number 5!

Montréal, November 23, 2017 – On Thursday, November 16, Jean-Guy Beaudoin won the progressive jackpot playing Leprechaun's Luck.



  • Game: Leprechaun's Luck
  • Prize won: $393,098
  • Date of win: November 16, 2017
  • Winners’ place of residence: Montérégie
  • Date and claim centre: November 17, 2017 at Loto-Québec’s head offices in Montréal



  • Mr. Beaudoin has been an Espacejeux.com client since 2010.

  • An early bird, he began playing his favourite game at 5 a.m. He was shocked when he won $393,098, and adding to his surprise was the fact that he won at precisely 5:55:55 a.m.!

  • This retiree from the Montérégie region, who spent six years living in the Dominican Republic will take the time to think of what to do with his winnings, but returning down South and buying a new car are two very plausible ideas.!”



  • “I may be on cloud 9, but 5 is definitely my lucky number now!”
