A Canadian couple is now millionaires thanks to a Valentine’s Day lotto ticket purchase made last year. But this story almost didn’t have a happy ending!
Had Nicole Pedneault and Roger Larocque not remembered that the Loto-Quebec print out had been placed in a book, it would have expired on Friday. Perhaps their grandson should get a cut. According to Pedneault, the child had asked to borrow the book for a school presentation, which led to the rediscovery.
Claiming their oversized check on Wednesday, Pedneault admitted, “It’s all just by chance that we found it at the last minute like that.”
