$800,000 up for grabs on La Poule aux œufs d’or this SundayThe jackpot continues to climb!

Montréal, June 1, 2023 – Viewers are invited to tune in to the Sunday, June 4 episode of La Poule aux œufs d’or at 5:30 p.m. on TVA when $800,000 will be up for grabs! If the coveted poulailler jackpot doesn’t find a winner, it’ll increase by $25,000 with each subsequent episode until a contestant wins it.


The last time a major prize like this was won was on October 23, when Jean-François Beauchamp and Lynda Scheib, a Lanaudière couple, took home a total of $774,000 after they won double the prize money! As a matter of fact, because Beauchamp had won a coq d’or (or gold rooster), he won double the prize hiding inside the egg he chose. If this type of scenario were to happen again on June 4, the winner would find themselves $1,600,000 richer!


The record jackpot for La Poule aux œufs d’or was $1,075,000 on May 26, 2004. Since the show launched 30 years ago, over 9,135 contestants have won a collective $278.2 million in prizes!


So what will it be? Will the $800,000 La Poule aux œufs d’or jackpot be won this Sunday? Tune into the episode—hosted by Sébastien Benoit, Julie Houle and Richard Turcotte—to find out!
