Montreal family wins Lotto Max draw – A family from Montréal won $65,000,000 in the June 11 Lotto Max draw. That’s the biggest jackpot in Canadian history!
The winning ticket was purchased at Dépanneur Springland, located at 2525 Rue Springland, in Montréal. The convenience store will collect a cool $650,000, i.e. 1% of the jackpot.
The family members celebrated their win during a press conference held today in Montréal.
Isabelle Jean, Loto-Québec’s President of Operations (Lotteries division) and Vice-President of Public Affairs, had this to say: “We’ve never paid out such a huge jackpot! Lotto Max is one of Québec’s most popular lottery draws and we’re thrilled that this is the second Lotto Max jackpot that’s been won here. Just one month ago, a group from Montréal’s South Shore won a whopping $50,000,000 through Lotto Max.”
Lotto Max only just recently moved to two draws a week, i.e. on Tuesdays and Fridays.
