Lagarde waited a few weeks to decide whether she should take the lifelong annuity or the lump sum payment; After talking with her financial advisor, she decided to pay weekly, Loto Quebec said.
"In Québec, lottery winnings are exempt from tax and lifelong pensions are actually paid for the entire life of the winner, and most lotteries in US jurisdictions often limit lifetime pensions to 25 years," said a spokesman for Loto Québec.
Lagarde plans to use her winnings to travel one of her passions, Loto Québec said.
"I would like to study photography, one of my dreams would be to work for National Geographic," Lagarde said.
