One lucky French Canadian beat odds of 14 million to 1 to win a $19.6 million Lotto 6/49 jackpot.

According to updates from online casinos in Canada, the winning Lotto 6/49 jackpot ticket of 04, 07, 13, 15, 27, and 28 for the November 28 draw was sold to someone somewhere in Quebec. The winner remains anonymous, though they are expected to come forward and claim their big prize soon. Their big win marks them as the 70th person in Quebec to have won at least $1 million in a lottery game this year.

French Canadians have a history of winning the Lotto 6/49 jackpot

That a French Canadian won the November 28 Lotto/649 jackpot is not surprising to Canada gambling news. Lotto 6/49 is, without question, the most popular lottery game in Quebec. Since the lottery’s inception in 1982, Quebecois have purchased around 27.5% of the tickets, and have historically won more than Canadians from any other province. In addition, they’re estimated to buy around 20% of the millions of Lotto 6/49 tickets sold for each draw.

The proof is in the past month alone. Over the course of November, four Quebecois were announced the winners of million dollar and multimillion dollar jackpots. Richard Robichaud claimed $1 million during the November 18 Lotto 6/49 jackpot draw; couple Lise-Andrée Mercier and Michel Doucet won $1 million a few days later on November 21; and now the 28 November winner.
