$1,000,000A Chaudière-Appalaches Resident Wins Big With a Scratch Ticket Purchased in Lévis

Montréal, November 23, 2023 — While he was at the Couche-Tard on Boulevard Couture in Lévis, Chaudière-Appalaches resident Gabriel Pouliot bought a 1 Million $ Casino scratch ticket. And he ended up winning the $1,000,000 grand prize!



  • Gabriel Pouliot asked his spouse to scratch the 1 Million $ Casino ticket at around 11 p.m. the same evening he purchased it. She was the one to see the prize amount first.
  • Pouliot called his parents to share the great news after taking a screenshot of the online ticket checker. Despite the late hour, they joined him to celebrate the win.
  • Pouliot received his million surrounded by his family. He only disclosed the prize amount to his sister and brother-in-law once they were in the Loto-Québec parking lot!
  • The 30-year-old says he’ll take some time to think about what else he wants to do with his windfall. In the meantime, the couple is already looking forward to a cruise.
