QUEBEC – Jules Parent is one lucky man.
For the second time in nine years, the 69-year-old Quebecer has won $1 million playing the lottery.
Parent showed up at Loto-Quebec offices in Quebec City today to pick up a cheque for $1,222,069 after winning the jackpot playing the Crown of Egypt lottery online.
He won $1 million back in 2008 playing Lotto 6-49.
Parent said in an interview he enjoys playing, but is not a compulsive gambler, adding it’s one of his favourite pastimes along with walking, fishing and hunting.
For now, the bachelor plans to demolish his home and build a new one. And he hasn’t ruled out a trip to Las Vegas.
