$1,000,000Four co-workers win a Maxmillions prize!

Montréal, November 25, 2022 – Four colleagues each bought a Lotto Max Formule groupe share for the October 11 draw, which won them a Maxmillions prize worth $1,000,000! Investing and purchasing a new car are the plans for these lucky winners, who live in Montérégie and the Laurentides.


The winning ticket was purchased at the Petro Pass, located on Rang du Coteau, in Saint-Jacques-le-Mineur.



  • These four colleagues have been playing every Lotto Max draw together for more than a year.
  • The day after the October 11 draw, Ginette Davidson was the first to check her ticket at the terminal.
  • At first, she thought she saw $250 on the display screen, but it was actually $250,000, a quarter of the group’s Maxmillions prize.
  • So, it was Davidson who had the pleasure of sharing the good news with her three colleagues, who were in disbelief and gobsmacked by the amount.


Name and region of the four winners:

  • Diane Archambault, Montérégie (one share)
  • Ginette Davidson, Montérégie (one share)
