$381,662“I didn’t think I’d won that much!”

Montréal, April 28, 2020 — On April 7, Côte-Nord resident Marilyne Émond won $139,344 playing Pots O’Luck on lotoquebec.com.

 

In summary

  • Game: Pots O’Luck
  • Prize: $139,344
  • Date of the win: April 7, 2020
  • Winner’s place of residence: Côte-Nord

 

Highlights

  • Marilyne was playing Pots O’Luck on her computer on April 7 when, as luck would have it, she landed on three pot-of-gold symbols during the free spins bonus.

  • Distracted, she didn’t notice right away that they appeared on the caravan pay line... meaning that the corresponding progressive jackpot of $139,344 was hers!

  • When this sunk in, she was so in shock that she closed the game window. “I didn’t think I’d won that much!”

  • When she reopened the game and saw how much she’d won, Marilyne just couldn’t believe it.

  • The Côte-Nord resident says she has no plans yet, and needs a bit more time to think about how she’ll spend her windfall.
