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 Ange-Gardien, about 75 kilometres east of Montreal.
Loto-Quebec says the payout is the largest in its history.
