Canadian Couple Find $1 Million Winning Lottery Ticket A Year Later

Most of us get a little excited when we find a few coins between the couch cushions; so imagine what a Canadian couple must have felt when they found a $1 million winning lottery ticket between the pages of a book nearly a year after the draw took place.


Roger Larocque and Nicole Pedneault bought a lottery ticket on Valentine's Day last year and promptly forgot about it until more than a year later. That was until Nicole came across the ticket after finding it tucked away in the pages of a book she had been reading.

Much to their shock, the ticket was a winner. And not just any winning ticket, the lucky couple had found a $1 million jackpot winning ticket! The couple found the ticket in the nick of time as it was set to expire in only a few days.

She ended up finding the ticket after going through belongings she had packed away after her grandson asked for her help on a school project about Japan. Having visited the country before she was looking for souvenirs that he could borrow.

"If my grandson hadn't asked to borrow those items for his show-and-tell presentation, I would never have found the ticket on time," Nicole told a local newspaper when asked how she found the ticket.

After treating themselves to a poutine with double cheese and double sauce, the couple say they plan on buying themselves a new car and gifting their children and grandchildren with the rest of the money.
