Just like many other fields, the gaming sector had to remain flexible in these unsure and trying times. So did La Poule aux Oeufs d’Or as a product of the gaming industry. Changing health and safety regulations and fluctuating numbers of Covid-19 infections have meant that the TV program had to adapt to the ever-changing situation to ensure its survival on air. This is why this year’s 28th season of the lottery show was so special.
This particular lottery comes in phases if the winners are lucky enough. The first phase involves purchasing a lottery ticket, with the lucky individual finding the special hen laying golden eggs. The second phase follows with a chance for the ticket-owner to participate in the special TV show, which could see them bagging thousands of dollars in no time. The way 2020 turned out, the main goal for the show this season was not only to change and improve people’s lives, but also to protect them and the TV crew, making sure that everyone stays safe. This took the form of physical distancing and an innovative way of conducting the regular episodes of the game show. Participants can now participate from the comfort of their own homes by using a table and participating live with its help, all the while communicating with the game’s hosts, Julie Houle and Sébastien Benoit. In the latest episode of La Poule aux Oeufs d’Or, Ms Houle and Mr Benoit had the pleasure of giving the winning couple the grand sum of CA$57,000.
The couple hailing from Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, Julie Charbonneau and her husband Yannick Beaulieu,used an electronic tablet to win the grand prize, which they managed to do in just a few minutes. Asked what they are going to do with all the money, the couple said that their plans for the foreseeable future included a much-wanted renovation of the house, now made possible with the huge cash prize. Some of the money will be put towards buying a new car for the two of them. Another winner on La Poule aux Oeufs d’Or, in an episode which took place this month, also bagged a prize to the tune of CA$53,000. Maurice Deroy from Pointe-Lebel became eligible for the cash payout on December 3. With his spoils, Mr Deroy is looking forward to an early retirement and a well-deserved break.
La Poule aux Oeufs d’Or has been changing lives for 27 years, and since then, it has received over 7,600 participants and awarded more than CA$242.1 million. Loto-Québec wishes to remind its customers that in order to protect them and its employees, its Montreal and Québec offices are open to winners by appointment only for prizes of CA$10,000 or more. Prizes under CA$10,000 can be claimed by mail, with the possibility of claiming prizes of CA$600 or less at one of Loto-Québec’s retailers.
