They get a ticket for a lottery that was forgotten in the book

A few days after the deadline for winning a prize, the couple had accidentally found a winning lottery ticket.

The map they won a "big hit" for months have forgotten in the book, the organizers of the draw have reported.

"If my grandson did not ask me to give him some stuff for his presentation, I would never find a map," said Nicole Pedneault.

Timely find

Last weekend they realized that they had a winning card for drawing on April 5, 2018.

This happened as Nicole looked at a book about Japan to help a granddaughter with a school project and noticed that something had hit the site.

It was a lucky couple bought last year for Valentine's Day.

"The first thing I did when I found a map in the book was to look at the time to get a profit on the Loto-Quebec website," he said.

It will expire soon

The map was still worth it, but not long: only until Friday.

"It was by accident that we found him last time in that way," the winner said while claiming to have a check.
