$100,000Lanaudière: a win that turned up the heat!

Montréal, April 12, 2019 – On March 22, Lanaudière resident Paul-André Allard pocketed $100,000 while playing Lotto Poker on Loto-Québec’s online gaming website, lotoquebec.com.


In short

  • Lottery: Lotto Poker
  • Prize won: $100,000
  • Winner’s place of residence: Lanaudière



  • Lotto Poker on lotoquebec.com was particularly generous to Paul-André Allard, who buys all his lottery tickets online. In early March, he won $2,436 with the Plus option, and on March 22, he pocketed another $100,000 prize!

  • The winner didn’t check his Espacejeux account or emails the day after the draw, so he was totally surprised to get a call from Loto-Québec with the good news. “I started sweating!” Paul-André said when he finally opened the email confirming the win.

  • While he hasn’t made any firm plans yet, he says he might take a trip.
