Lotto MaxA new millionaire in the Laurentides!

Montréal, July 7, 2022 — Laurentides resident Sonia Gravel, a self-proclaimed Lotto Max fan, took home a Maxmillions prize worth $1,000,000, in the June 7 Lotto Max draw. It was her spouse who asked her, before going to work on the day after the draw, if she had remembered to check her ticket. She said the Loto-Québec app’s trumpet sound heralding a big winner was what drew her attention to her stroke of luck! An accountant by trade, Gravel says she plans on making her money grow. She wants her windfall to last for a long time!
