The abysmal year that is 2020 has taken a pretty rich turn for a Loto-Québec player.

After having gone unclaimed since October 9, the newly-crowned multi-millionaire has stepped forward.

In a news release, the crown corporation announced the bigtime $70-million cheque will be handed out on Friday in Montreal.

The cheque will be delivered by a robot, as has been the case throughout the pandemic to coincide with sanitary measures and physical distance guidelines.

So yes, the winner will get a full bank account and get to shake hands with a robot — double cool.

The robot, SARA, was developed and controlled by students from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS).

SARA was created to “support innovation in Quebec,” according to Loto-Québec, and was used specifically to comply with the government’s physical distancing guidelines.

Additional winning numbers can be found on the Loto-Québec website, you know, in case you’re a millionaire without even knowing it.
