A Montreal woman nearly threw a winning lottery ticket into the trash while cleaning her house, according to Loto-Québec.
July-Chinna Su was at work when she saw a Loto-Québec Facebook post saying that no one had yet claimed the winning ticket on a $1 million draw. The post reminded her she had bought a ticket in LaSalle and that the ticket, still unchecked, was sitting on her kitchen counter.
After waiting anxiously to get home, Su looked at the number and realized she’d won the June 8 Maxmillions prize.
More than a month after the draw, Su collected the $1 million prize.
Elle apprend sur @tvanouvelles & @JdeMontreal que @LotoQuebec recherche des gagnants qui n’ont pas encore réclamé leur lot, vérifie ses vieux billets et réalise qu’elle est millionnaire! July-Chinna est venue chercher son chèque ce matin à nos bureaux! Félicitations! #nosgagnants pic.twitter.com/vMtowUSVc3
