Residents of Québec have been offered the opportunity to make a difference in the community following the launch of Loto-Québec’s latest lottery game.
On Monday, Loto-Québec released the second edition of Loto-o-suivant, its lottery game which is on a mission to aid charities.
The first edition launched in 2021 and Loto-Québec has now released an updated version of the game.
The $2 scratch tickets went on sale on September 26 and are available online and at retail locations in the province.
There is a $10,000 grand prize on offer to 50 players, with the winners draw set to take place on November 15.
As well as taking home $10,000, players will also be asked to choose a charitable organisation to which Loto-Québec will match the amount.
“When we launched the first edition last year, it was touching to see how moved the winners were to be able to make a $10,000 donation to a cause they care about, and how appreciative the charities they chose were to receive these donations,” said Isabelle Jean, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Lottery Games.
“So we’re thrilled to be launching the Loto-o-suivant lottery game again this fall.”
In total, $500,000 in donations will be made to charities chosen by Québec residents.
Loto-Québec has stated that the organisation does not make money from the game.
