Highlights

  • Just a $20 bet on an Odds of the Gods game made Alexandra Lépine $303,341 richer. “I opened the game and the very first time I clicked on it, I landed on the Mount Olympus bonus,” she said. “After I threw the dice, a chest opened to display a diamond and a message reading ʻCongratulations! You’ve won the progressive prize.ʼ I was a bit stunned and didn’t quite understand what was happening.”

  • She called Loto-Québec’s customer service to ask whether she had really won. It was only once the agent confirmed the win that she realized she was several thousand dollars richer. Then, she started crying tears of joy! 

  • She plans to pay off some bills, take a trip down South with her children and make some investments. She would also like to treat her dad, who will be retiring soon.
