Montréal, August 6, 2019 – On July 27, 2019, the Roue de fortune chez vous! recording team was in the Donnacona area where Florence Beaupré lives.

  • Prize: $1,000,000
  • Winner’s place of residence: Donnacona, Québec City Region

  • While Florence usually buys scratch tickets, this time she asked for lotteries issued on the terminal, including her Roue de fortune éclair ticket.

  • That was a great choice, as she won a Roue de fortune chez vous! TV spot.

  • This generous woman volunteers her time several times a week at her neighbourhood CHSLD, taking along her nephew’s dog Poupounne to provide the residents with some company.

  • And that’s where she wanted to spin the wheel on July 27.

  • Lady Luck smiled on her once again, as she won the $1 million grand prize!

  • Florence has lots of plans, but will take some time to think about how she’ll use the money. One thing is sure though, she’ll continue her volunteer work.
