In short

  • Lottery: Adventures in Wonderland
  • Prize won: $356,056

  • It had been a while since Andrée Meilleur had played one of her favourite online slot games—Adventures in Wonderland—so she decided to do so late one afternoon.

  • She started off with a $5 bet, but didn’t win anything. A few minutes passed, and she decided to bet another $5. Still nothing.

  • She went back to her chores, only to finally give in to one last $5 bet. The third time turned out to be a charm though, and she won $356,056! “I lucked out big time on my third try!” the winner exclaimed when she came to claim her prize.

  • “I couldn’t believe it—couldn’t believe it was me who won!”

  • Andrée plans to share the money with her spouse and buy a new car.
