"When the prize pool is this high, we can't help but get excited at the thought of the jackpot being won by a Québec player, like it was in June when a Montérégie resident won $70 million. Québec lottery players won a total of $1.5 billion in prizes last year alone, which is a record for Loto-Québec," points out Isabelle Jean, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Lottery Games.
