$1,000,000A Montérégie resident wins the Lotto 6/49 guaranteed prize!

Montréal, September 21, 2022 — Pierre Laberge took home the guaranteed million-dollar prize in the August 24 Lotto 6/49 draw. When he saw $1,000,000 pop up on-screen, the Montérégie resident used the self-serve ticket checker to double-check his ticket. He even gave the machine a little nudge to make sure it was working! Laberge, who’s a musician, says he plans to use part of the money to buy himself an electric drum set, so he can play the drums without bothering his neighbours.

 

The winning ticket was purchased at the IGA Extra on Route 132 in Delson. The retailer will receive a 1% commission of $10,000.
