A Lucky Find: Quebec Resident Wins $50,000 with Célébration 2023 Lottery Ticket

A Lucky Find

With just 12 days left until the deadline, Lauzon found the ticket he had lost after hiding it somewhere in his books. He had received the ticket as a Christmas gift in 2022 for the January 8, 2023 draw. Lauzon discovered his win, and decided to put the winning ticket in a book, planning to claim his prize later. But as the deadline approached, the ticket mysteriously disappeared and Lauzon could no longer find which book he had tucked his ticket into.

Time is Ticking

As time kept ticking, the deadline was fast approaching. Lauzon searched for several months before he finally found the biography book in which he had hidden his winning ticket. His lucky find came just 12 days before the January 8, 2024 deadline — a reminder that lottery winners have one year from the draw date to claim their winnings.

Invest in Your Future

Now, with extra cash in hand, Lauzon plans to invest in his future. The $50,000 prize is a great opportunity for him to secure his financial stability and pursue his dreams.
