Millionaires thanks to a lotto ticket found in a coat pocket

A couple from Montérégie became millionaires thanks to a lottery ticket found in a coat several months after the draw.

Gail B. and Norman Laff shared a prize of $1 million from the November 24 draw.

According to what Loto-Québec reported, Ms. Laff took advantage of a visit to the pharmacy with her spouse to finally have the lottery tickets that had been in her coat pocket for more than three months checked.

“After checking the tickets, the pharmacy employee told them that their Lotto 6/49 ticket was a winner, but she was unable to pay for the prize [because of its value],” said told Loto-Québec by press release.

The winners have indicated that they will take advantage of this gain “to spoil their children and make investments”.

The winning ticket was purchased at Brunet Plus on Main Street in Hudson. The retailer will receive a commission of 1% of the win, or $10,000.
