1 min read


A $48 million lottery ticket was recently sold in Canada to someone who had never played the lottery before – because she had just turned 18. Juliette Lamour purchased the ticket at a Circle K store in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and found out she won on Jan. 7 while at work. 

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation presented Lamour with her massive check on Friday, calling her the youngest Canadian to ever win such a big jackpot through the lottery.

Lamour said it was her grandfather who suggested she buy a lotto ticket. “I had just turned 18 and my grandfather suggested I buy a lottery ticket for fun,” Lamour said at a media conference on Friday, according to OLG.

Juliette Lamour, a college student at Algoma University, won $48 million in the Ontario lottery.
