Quebec family hits it big in $60-million jackpot


MONTREAL – Twenty-six people from the same Quebec family, plus two close friends, are the winners of a recent $60-million Lotto Max jackpot.

Some of the new millionaires held a news conference in Montreal this morning, six days after the Jan. 6 draw.

Loto-Quebec says it was during a New Year’s Day family dinner that Annie Roy, who purchased the lucky ticket, suggested forming a group.

The ticket was bought in L’Ange-Gardien, about 75 kilometres east of Montreal.

Loto-Quebec says the payout is the largest in its history.
