11 Estrie residents won the classic jackpot of five million dollars in Lotto 6/49, during the draw on 1er last June.

The winners purchased a Formula groupe ticket without knowing each other, according to a Loto-Québec press release published Friday. Ten families will benefit from the prize, since a mother-son duo will divide the sum of $500,000.

One of the winners, Ginette Brault, had a nice surprise when she went to claim her prize at Loto-Québec. Instead, she believed she had won $50,000. She wants to take advantage of this higher amount to take a trip to Italy.

For her part, Donatella Cherubini learned that she was one of the lucky ones while she was camping.

“I’m happy to have won as a group, because yes, $5,000,000 is great, but ten shares of $500,000 makes ten families from Estrie who are even happier!” did she say.

The retailer who sold the Group Formula, Petro MC located on Boivin Boulevard in Granby, will receive a commission of $50,000, equivalent to 1% of the gain.
