Court says Loto Quebec doesn't have to pay wins

A couple who sued Loto-Quebec when it refused to pay out on their scratch ticket wins has lost their case in court.

A Superior Court judge has ruled that the lottery corporation does not have to pay them a claim totalling more than $300,000.

The couple had purchased thirty Ble D'Or scratch tickets - but the key point was when those purchases were made.

Loto-Quebec launched the Ble D'Or line in 2011 and recalled all the tickets within hours after realizing that there were printing errors.

The couple claimed they purchased the tickets in the days prior to the official launch at a depanneur owned by the woman's parents.

Loto-Quebec argued that the purchases came after store owners were informed of the recall and the couple's goal was to capitalize on the printing errors.

The judge sided with Loto-Quebec, pointing to inconsistencies in the family's story.
