Loto-Quebec has this week released the second edition of Loto-o-suivant, its lottery game which aims to give back to charities.

The first edition launched in 2021 and Loto-Quebec has decided to capitalise on its success with an updated release.

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-Quebec 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 Quebec residents.

Loto-Quebec, who reported a fall in its Q1 lottery revenue last week, has stated that the organisation does not make money from Loto-o-suivant.
