$1,000 a week for life!The Gagnant à vie! lottery has made one Montérégie resident very happy

Montréal, June 14, 2018 – Chantal Faille got quite a surprise when she scratched her Gagnant à vie! ticket: She won the grand prize, i.e. $1,000 a week for her whole, entire life.


She hesitated between the annuity and the $1 million lump sum, but ended up choosing the first option. She might take her well-earned retirement to spend more time with her family and many grandchildren.
