4 Quebecers Are Unknowing Millionaires & Loto-Québec Needs Them To Claim Their Prizes

One is worth 2.5 million!
Loto-Québec Unclaimed Prizes: Four People In Southern Quebec Are Unknowing Millionaires

Loto-Québec is looking for four soon-to-be millionaires who have not claimed their prizes and will soon be out of luck. Three of the prizes are for $1 million each and the fourth is for $2.5 million. All four tickets were purchased in Southern Quebec. 

All four tickets were drawn in 2019 and winners are given one full calendar year to claim their prize.

So if you've purchased a ticket recently, it's time to start looking under your couch or the seat of your car because you could be unknowingly sitting on a million bucks. 

Now, maybe you know you're not the ticket-holder yourself, but you know someone living in one of the regions mentioned below. Consider this: if you pass this good news along, you could find yourself the recipient of a nice little reward if your friend or family member ends up being the winner.

They never would have known without you! That deserves a little something, no question.

All the details, including what region the ticket was purchased in and on what day, as well as the winning numbers and the claim deadline can be found below...

I've got my fingers crossed for you!

The first Lotto 6/49 jackpot prize is for $2,500,000 and was purchased in Sorel-Tracy on December 4, 2019, meaning it must be claimed by December 3, 2020. The winning numbers were: 02 03 04 10 21 43 (19).

The second Extra jackpot prize is for $1,000,000 and was purchased in Maskinongé on December 18, 2019, meaning it must be claimed by December 17, 2020. The winning numbers were: 1357833.

The second Extra jackpot prize is for $1,000,000 and was purchased in the Laurentides on July 24, 2019, meaning it must be claimed by July 23, 2020. The winning numbers were 5823177.

The final Québec Max additional selection prize is for $1,000,000 and was purchased in Gatineau on July 5, 2019, meaning it must be claimed by July 4, 2020. The winning numbers were: 02 09 10 16 25 29 49.

Loto-Québec only informs lottery ticket buyers when a prize of over $100,000 is yet to be claimed, so if you or someone you know purchases tickets on any kind of regular basis, it's wise not to misplace them.

You could be the winner of anywhere up to $99,999 and not know it.

Luckily, Loto-Québec tries to make sure super big prizes, like the ones mentioned above, are always claimed if several weeks go by without the winner coming forward.

When prize money eventually goes unclaimed after 12 months, Loto-Québec redistributes it to winners later in the form of prizes and special draws.

A full list of unclaimed prizes over $100,000 can be found at Loto-Québec here.
