TL;DR Loto Quebec has announced a call to the public to find the winner of the 40 million dollar 64/9 ticket which was purchased in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu Quebec.

As someone who rarely buys a lottery ticket, I wonder: What the point of buying a ticket, if you're never going to check if it's a winner?

That said, Lotto Quebec is looking for the lucky Quebecer who purchase the HUGE 40 million dollars 6/49 jackpot ticket.
