Loto Quebec is looking for the winner of a million-dollar prize.
The winning ticket from the July 11, 2014 Extra draw has gone unclaimed after a month, which lottery officials say is unusual, since 98 percent of winners claim their prizes with four weeks.
The winning number is 0618677.
The gambling authority suspects the winner is not aware they are holding onto a winning ticket, since the Extra is printed on so many receipts, whether gamblers pay for their Extra ticket or not.
The only thing known about the winner is that they purchased their ticket in Ste. Adele. Loto Quebec knows which store sold the ticket, but it's internal policies prevent the agency from revealing the exact point of sale.
Whoever purchased the winning ticket has until 4:30 p.m. on July 11, 2015 to show up at the Loto Quebec offices in Quebec City or Montreal to claim their prize.
