A Center-du-Québec resident chose to keep going after winning more than $7 million in the Lotto 6/49 lottery.
On January 29, while listening to the radio, Hubert Briault learned that Lotto 6/49 had won the grand prize in his area.
So he went to get his ticket in his car to see if he had the winning ticket. To his surprise, he realized that he was the lucky winner of more than 7 million dollars.
The new millionaire then continued to the office while waiting to claim his prize at Loto-Québec.
“Even if it’s been a few days since I knew I won, I really realized today, right here, in the Loto-Québec Winners’ Lounge!” Priolle confirmed at the time to receive the check.
The guy from the Quebec Retirement Center is planning. With the money he’s earned, Mr. Priolle intends to make investments, spoil his two sons, build a new home and buy an electric car.
The new millionaire also plans to travel and visit Western Canada and the Grand Canyon, among others, when health permits.
The winning ticket was purchased at the Sonic Service Station, a branch of Vivaco Groupe Coopératif, on Arthabaska Boulevard, in Victoriaville. This retailer will receive a commission of over $71,000, equal to 1% of the gain,” Loto-Québec said in a press release.
