$500,000Lotto Max: One prize is nice... but two is even better!

Montréal, January 22, 2020 – On December 31, Laval resident Daniel Vanasse won $500,000 playing Lotto Max on lotoquebec.com.

 

In summary

  • Lottery: Lotto Max
  • Prize: $500,000
  • Category: Maxmillions
  • Date of the win: December 31, 2019
  • Winner’s place of residence: Laval
  • Claim date and place: January 3, 2020, at Loto-Québec’s head office in Montréal

 

Highlights

  • In Daniel’s couple, he is the lottery fan. He likes to try his luck when large prizes are offered and finds lotoquebec.com’s platform very user-friendly.

  • Recently, he was delighted to visit Loto-Québec’s claim centre for a second time! After winning $5,000 at Lotto 6/49 just over five years ago, the Laval resident took home one half of a Maxmillions, or $500,000, thanks to a Lotto Max ticket purchased online.

  • For the December 31 draw, he bought two tickets: one with his favourite combination and the other as a Quick Pick. It was the latter that delivered the big surprise!

  • When Daniel checked the draw results on the morning of January 1, he immediately said to his spouse: “Sweetheart! We’ve won $500,000!” She was more sceptical, though. “It’s unbelievable,” she said when they came to pick up the cheque.

  • Thanks to that second win, the lucky man will have a more comfortable retirement.
