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.
