Lotto Max23 co-workers share $1,000,000

Montréal, June 14, 2018 – A group of 23 co-workers in Montréal’s health sector won $1 million in the May 25 Lotto Max draw. The lucky winners live in Laval, Montérégie and Montréal.

  • A week after their win, a group of co-workers with atypical work schedules managed to find a moment when they were all available to claim their prize at Loto-Québec’s headquarters.
  • When the Lotto Max jackpot reached $60 million, Lyne Leclerc took the initiative to create a group with her co-workers. That was a great decision, as they won a Maxmillions and each took home over $43,000!
  • “It couldn’t have happened to a better group of people. Everyone needs money, but I know we’ll all spend our shares wisely,” said Ms. Leclerc with a catch in her voice as she received her cheque.
