Helping jackpot winners claim their prizes before the deadline is important to Loto‑Québec. For this reason, the Corporation implemented a procedure for draw lotteries in order to systematically inform lottery ticket buyers when a $1 million or more prize has not been collected. Therefore, one month after a draw where such a prize remains unclaimed, Loto-Québec publishes a first press release indicating the name of the product, the value of the prize, the date of the draw and the region where the winning ticket was purchased. If the prize remains unclaimed, other press releases are issued as needed before the claim deadline.
A total of 98% of large prizes are claimed within four weeks. Any unclaimed prizes are redistributed to players in the form of bonus prizes and special draws.
In addition, a page listing unclaimed prizes worth $1 million or more following a first press release is displayed on Loto-Québec's lottery web site. This page may be viewed at any time and facilitates consumer follow-up on prizes.
Customers may have their tickets validated by any of the approximately 8,500 retailers or check it themselves anywhere and at any time using the Lotteries application for smartphones and computer tablets.
