Loto-Quebec's $55 million prize remains unclaimed

Nov 18 2020, 2:37 pm

The abysmal year that is 2020 could take a pretty rich turn for someone who hasn’t yet checked a big-time lottery loot from the end of October.

Loto-Québec is searching for the unclaimed winner of the Lotto Max $550 million draw from October 30, in which the winning ticket was purchased in Outaouais.

It’s essentially the real-life version of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, but instead of candy, it’s a full bank account.

“Loto-Québec is asking the media for help in finding the person who purchased the winning ticket for the October 30 Lotto Max draw in the regional county municipality of Collines-de-l’Outaouais,” says the crown corporation’s news release.

Besides the big treasure, there are also three $1 million prizes, one $500,000, and one $200,000 prize yet to be claimed.  The winning tickets were purchased in Gatineau, the regional county municipality of Thérèse-De Blainville, LavalSaint-Hubert and Quebec City.

Unknowing winners have one year to claim their prize.


Winners have 12 months following the draw to claim their prize, according to Loto-Québec. The corporation says it “informs lottery ticket buyers when a prize over $100,000 has still not been claimed after several weeks.”

Unclaimed prizes are redistributed to players in the form of bonus prizes and special draws, but that’s boring. Go grab your unclaimed millions.
