One or more Quebecers were treated to an unexpected Christmas present a few days in advance, Saturday evening, since a jackpot of nearly $ 29 million from Lotto 6/49 was won in the province.
Loto-Québec has indicated that the winning ticket, with the combination 01-08-10-11-17-35, was purchased in Quebec. However, it remained to be determined in which region the lucky holder (s) of the lucky ticket are located.
Either way, the winner (s) of this jackpot will have no trouble completing their holiday shopping, as they will share the sum of $ 29,936,318.10.
Also, a lucky one from the Prairies got his hands on a $ 1 million prize, while a Quebecker and three Ontarians are holding tickets worth close to $ 72,500.
In addition, 834,129 people will be able to try their luck again, during the next draw on Wednesday 23 December, thanks to a free entry.
The prize awarded Saturday night is the 8th jackpot won in the province since the start of the year. In total, the lottery had made it possible to make 104 new millionaires, as of December 14, according to Loto-Quebec.
