Lottery games were more than generous over the past couple of days when it comes to the Canadian provinces and their avid lotto enthusiasts. Lotto 6/49 was among the popular offerings to grant its Main prize amounting to CA$17 million to a player in Ontario. Montreal co-workers share the CA$50-million Lotto MAX jackpot following a couple of days of hesitation. Every one of the six individuals bagged CA$8.3 million.
Canadians often opt for the group action when it comes to their lottery activities, as this increases their chances of winning big. A group of coworkers hailing from Montreal was able to see their dreams come true with a group ticket for a recent Lotto MAX draw. Loto-Québec announced that its November 26 draw comes with a great prize for someone hailing from Quebec.
Co-Workers Share CA$50 Million
Following a couple of days of taking care of the logistics, six employees of the École Marcelle-Gauvreau in Brossard made their way to Montreal, in order to claim their winning cheque and take a photo with it. The CA$50-million prize was sliced in six, with each of the colleagues bagging CA$8.3 million of the overall prize. The retail location where they had purchased their winning Lotto MAX ticket also benefitted.
According to the established rules, the retail location that had sold a winning ticket is eligible for a percent of its overall prize. Lyne Gendron was the leader of this winning group, but it appears that nobody asked her to purchase the lottery ticket. She has done that ahead of the winning draw, as the jackpot was swelling. They usually purchase group tickets when the Main prize reaches a certain amount.
Last week nobody asked Ms. Gendron to purchase a ticket, but upon arriving at work she announced that all five of them owe her CA$5 for the Lotto MAX piece of paper. The winners were thankful for her proactive approach once they claimed the CA$50-million prize. Some of the workers consider their early retirement.
Someone Could Bag CA$17 Million
Some of them are ready to fuel their business ideas and pursue their own dreams in an entirely new field. A Player of Manitoba could soon bag CA$84,000 as a result of a fortunate Lotto MAX ticket. December 3 is about to bring a CA$16-million Lotto MAX Main prize. Lotto 6/49 announced that a single ticket sold in Ontario is now eligible for its CA$17-million Main prize.
Whoever is in possession of this winning ticket has 52 weeks to claim their major prize and change their life for good. For the time being, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has not revealed the exact place of purchase of the winning ticket, but this could happen in the upcoming weeks.
A Western Canada player has also been fortunate enough to become eligible for a CA$63,000 as a result of the recent Lotto 6/49 draw. December 4 would bring the next Lotto 6/49 draw with Main prize reaching CA$5 million that could once again be snatched by a devote lottery aficionado.
