A group of co-workers, several from Halton Region are taking home a bit of extra cash after a big win with Lotto Max.
The group of 25 have played Lotto Max every Friday for the past 10 years.
“We have specific numbers we play,” Anthony D’Antuono, of Milton, said.
D’Antuono was checking the groups ticket over his coffee when he noticed some of the numbers were a match.
When D’Antuono confirmed the ticket was a ‘Big Winner’ using the OLG Lottery App, he sent a screenshot to the coworkers group chat – many were in disbelief.
“This win feels good,” D’Antuono said.
The group received a second place prize of $70,730, split 25 ways, each coworker will receive about $2,800. The OLG said the group are “celebrating” the win.
Four of the 25 co-winners live in Halton Region including:
– Anthony D’Antuono of Milton
– Gabriele Gallo of Milton
– John Sutman of Georgetown
– Ormond Bunyan of Milton
The winning ticket was purchased at a Petro Canada gas station on Britannia Rd. in Mississauga.
