Montréal, December 6, 2019 – On November 27, Laurentides resident Danick Ouellet won $270,183 playing Chain Reactors Super Trails on lotoquebec.com.


In summary

  • Game: Chain Reactors Super Trails
  • Prize: $270,183
  • Date of the win: November 27, 2019
  • Winner’s place of residence: Laurentides
  • Claim date and place: December 2, 2019, at Loto-Québec’s head office in Montréal



  • Not wanting to risk waking up his girlfriend, Danick decided to bet a few dollars on lotoquebec.com rather than watch TV.

  • He was playing Chain Reactors Super Trails when the clock struck 12:30 a.m., the stars aligned and an amount of $270,183 popped up on his screen.

  • The lucky winner immediately went to wake up his girlfriend—and call his parents whom he knew would still be awake at that time—to tell them the good news. His mother and father were somewhat skeptical...

  • It was only when they got to Loto-Québec’s offices that their doubts vanished.

  • Danick, who’s been running his own company for two years, says he plans to invest the money and enjoy his windfall for as long as possible.
