If you've bought any lottery tickets recently, you might want to double-check them, because Loto-Québec is looking for a winner of the Loto 6/46 one million dollar prize! Maybe your lottery ticket will pay off for once.
The Loto 6/49 is a biweekly draw, with a guaranteed prize of $1,000,000, a jackpot of at least $5,000,000 and a one in six chance of winning a prize. On Wednesday, no one claimed the $1,000,000 prize, which means that the lucky winner is still out there!
According to Loto-Québec, the winning ticket was bought in Terrebonne. They tweeted this out this morning to let the public know they were still looking for a winner of last night's draw.
The Tweet above reads, "There is a winning ticket of the guaranteed $1M prize of the Lotto 6/49 which was sold in Terrebonne (draw from the 22nd of May). Check your tickets! We're waiting for you."
Loto-Québec, unhelpfully, does not list the winning numbers on their website, but you can check your ticket here. If you bought a ticket in Terrebonne and haven't checked your ticket yet, do so now!
The Loto-Quebec Lotto 6/49 was inaugurated on June 12, 1982, and it's been giving away money since. Prizes often go unlaimed at Lotto-Quebec. They have a section on their website dedicated to tracking down these oblivious winners.
Just last year, for example, Loto-Québec was looking for four unclaimed $200,000 jackpot winners. And, a few months ago, Loto-Québec was looking for an unclaimed $1,000,000 jackpot prize winner. So if you are a ticket buyer, don't let yourself be one of those oblivious winners!
