Post by oneh2obabe »

Quebec teen buys first-ever lottery ticket to celebrate 18th birthday, wins $1,000 a week for life.

MONTREAL—A Quebec teen who bought a lottery ticket for the first time to celebrate her entry into adulthood has walked away with $1,000 a week for the rest of her life.

Charlie Lagarde won the grand prize in the Gagnant a Vie lottery.

Lagarde, who hails from the Monteregie area just southeast of Montreal, was celebrating her 18th birthday.

Loto-Quebec said she went to local liquor store for sparkling wine and also bought herself a $4 scratch lottery ticket at a nearby convenience store on March 13.

Class act taking people out for dinner. I hope he does well with the winnings. Would get him a nice house with a rentable suite and a very small mortgage as they go, too.

I wonder if he's looking now.

If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Thankfully Charlie is too young to know how little $52k buys you today then it did when we were that age :biggrin:

But that's a great start to life.

Be smart with the money, but do enjoy the blessing you've been given and splurge a little bit here and there :up:

Set for Life is for 25 years ($52,000 x 25 years or 1 time payout out of $625,000)

The Daily Grand is $1,000 per/day until the winner dies.

Hey, this is a two year old post and no one responded to it until today? :200:

I'll bet for the past two years waterbabe has been feeling dejected and unwanted, and finally QueenK acknowledges her.

Oh we talk to each other all the time. I was just looking for a different lottery thread when i spotted this one.

Meh. It worked. My point is that at one time 500K actually bought a nice house, now it's just a downpayment.
