South Shore group to split record jackpot
A group of 20 people will split $60 million after the winning Lotto Max ticket was purchased on Montreal's South Shore.
Friday night's jackpot is the largest in the history of Loto-Quebec.
Spokesman Patrice Lavoie says Loto Quebec will be expecting a call from the winners Monday morning to set up an appointment.
Previous jackpots reached $55 million in July 2015.
Three Lotto Max jackpots of $50 million have also been awarded in the past.
Each holder of Friday night's winning ticket will receive $3 million.
Loto-Quebec says 22 one-million dollar prizes up for grabs last night were won by tickets purchased in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, the Prairies and Atlantic Provinces.
