With the first lottery ticket she ever purchased, a Canadian youngster won $36 million. Juliette Lamour, an 18-year-old university student, said her grandfather suggested she buy the ticket.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation confirmed that Lamour had won the C$48 million ($36 million) award.
"While there have been other 18-year-old lottery winners in recent years across Canada, no one has won as much as Juliette," (the firm stated).
Lamour claimed she had forgotten she had purchased the winning ticket until coworkers mentioned it had been sold in Sault Ste. Marie.
"I just turned 18, and my grandfather suggested I buy a lottery ticket for fun," Lamour said, according to Canada's Global News. "When I went to the store, I wasn't sure what to ask for because I had never bought a ticket before, so I called my dad, who told me to buy a Lotto 6-49 Quick Pick."
The chances of winning the lottery depend on the specific lottery game you are playing and the number of tickets sold. On average, the odds of winning the grand prize can range from 1 in several million to 1 in over a billion, sometimes even more. The odds can vary greatly, so it's important to check the rules and regulations of the specific lottery you are interested in to determine the odds of winning.
She discovered she had become a multi-millionaire after checking her ticket on the app with her coworker. The adolescent stated that she intends to have some summer activities as well as earn her university degree.
