The draw began on Friday, June 5, 1970. La Mini was the second-ever lottery game launched by Loto-Québec.
In 2020, to commemorate Loto-Québec's 50th anniversary, the look of La Mini was updated with a little comic strip incorporated into the tickets. Last summer, Loto-Québec launched an enormous advertising campaign geared toward Millennials and Generation Z. The lottery increased consumer awareness by publishing three partially blank microcomics on Facebook and asking players to guess the punchline or come up with a joke for each one. Internet users had the opportunity to win 50 years' worth of La Mini tickets and have their amusing comic strip printed on the cards.
