$1,000,000Contestant wins the grand prize during her second stint on Roue de fortune chez vous!

Montréal, July 21, 2022 — Capitale-Nationale resident Louise Gagné took home the $1,000,000 grand prize on the Roue de fortune chez vous! show after she spun the wheel at Le Bonne Entente Hotel in Quebec City. This isn’t the first time Gagné has gotten a lucky break—she won $30,000 with the same lottery game two years ago!



  • When Gagné found out she’d won a spot on the show (i.e. a participation télé), she ran to tell her son and daughter-in-law the good news.
  • “You’ve won again!” said her son. This was an extremely rare stroke of luck for the lucky winner, who was to appear for the second time on Roue de fortune chez vous! 
  • This time around though, the wheel landed on “$1,000,000,” i.e. the grand prize!
  • Among other things, Gagné says she plans to take her family to Mexico, go on a cruise with her sister, and purchase a new convertible with her windfall.
