$5,000,000An Outaouais family wins the Lotto 6/49 jackpot!

Montréal, November 24, 2022 – An Outaouais family won the $5,000,000 Classic Jackpot in the October 22 Lotto 6/49 draw. Pierre Gendron, his spouse Gisèle Robinson and their daughters Anne-Marie and Caroline Gendron make up the lucky family.


To think that Mr. Gendron first thought that the group had won $5,000! With the jackpot in hand, the family now has many projects lined up. Caroline Gendron plans to buy a house, and her sister Anne-Marie would love a small cottage by a lake. Their father, Pierre Gendron, will go on a hunting trip with friends. All he has left to do is decide between Gaspésie, Newfoundland and the Yukon!



  • Pierre Gendron stopped at a store on the way to his hunting camp to check the family’s lottery tickets. He was under the impression that they’d won $5,000 when the retailer announced that it was, in fact, $5,000,000!
  • Upon returning home, he announced the good news to his spouse and called his daughters. The lucky winners shed tears of joy!


The winning ticket was purchased at Dépanneur Eardley at 1536 Route 148 in Luskville. The retailer will receive a 1% commission of $50,000.
