La Poule aux œufs d’orA Louiseville resident wins the top prize!

Montréal, April 16, 2024 — The La Poule aux œufs d’or top prize has again been won, this time on the Sunday, April 14 show. Jeanne-Mance Morin, a retiree from Louiseville, was the contestant who won the $300,000 top prize. She walked away with a total of $309,000.



  • “Jeanne-Mance Morin, from Louiseville, didn’t want to be on TV... Too late!” said the show’s host, Richard Turcotte, as he introduced the contestant. “It’s not my favourite thing to do!” she laughingly replied to co-host Sébastien Benoit.
  • Once she reached the final round, Morin chose egg number 9 at random. The amount in the envelope was $30,000, but she decided to opt for what was hiding in the egg. “And it’s the top prize!” exclaimed Sébastien Benoit as he unveiled the words “gros lot” under a shower of golden confetti.
  • “Jeanne-Mance, who was reluctant to buy La Poule aux œufs d’or tickets because she didn’t want to be on TV, has just made a life-changing decision, that’s for sure!” he added.
