2 Friends Won $1M From Loto-Québec After Joking That They Had An Unclaimed Ticket
Imagine if joking and dreaming about winning the lottery turned out to be real? That's what happened to two friends in Sept-Îles who didn't know they were the winners of an unclaimed million-dollar prize in an April Québec Max draw.
Upon learning that Loto-Québec was looking for the winning ticket holder(s), Sophie Racine-Langis and Kim P Bond "began teasing each other via text message," reads a news release. "The two friends joked and made plans, but had no idea that they were the winners."
Eventually, they double-checked their numbers and validated their ticket.
Racine-Langis and Bond have been buying lottery tickets together for the past two years.
They plan to spend their winnings on a new car, travel, renovations and investments.
