$153,383Cashdrop: He won the progressive jackpot!

Montréal, May 23, 2019 – On April 23, Montérégie resident Alain Jutras pocketed $153,383 while playing Cashdrop on Loto-Québec’s online gaming website, lotoquebec.com.


In short

  • Lottery: Cashdrop
  • Prize won: $153,383
  • Winner’s place of residence: Montérégie



  • Alain Jutras was playing on his laptop when he found out he’d won the progressive jackpot. “I saw the numbers stack up, and leaned it to get a closer look.”

  • Alain confided that it took him a little while to understand what was going on and come to the realization that he’d snagged $153,383 playing his favourite game, Cashdrop. He especially loves the game for the graphics, which really give you the impression that you’re playing a slot machine. “It’s quite simple—if you were to remove this game from the site, you’d lose me as a customer!” Alain laughed.

  • Cautious by nature, Alain doesn’t plan on doing anything too crazy with his winnings. He plans to treat himself to things like a new cell phone and laptop. After that, he says he’ll take the time to think about how he’ll invest the money!
