A group of GTA coworkers just won the $15 million Lotto Max jackpot and half of them retired without a second thought.
According to OLG, the group of 12 has been playing the lottery together for five years now.
After learning of their big win, six of them retired immediately.
I told each team member as they came in for their shift. At first, no one believed it.
Rocco Coluccio, the coworker who discovered the good news, said that he went into work and announced it to everyone individually as they walked in for their shift.
"One of the group members called me on my way into work and said, ‘We won! We won!’ I drove straight to the gas station to confirm.”
The group members said that they will use their winnings to travel when it's safe to do so, save for retirement, and share with their families.
According to a news release, the winning ticket was purchased at Petro Canada on Queen Street in Bolton, Ontario.
The group of millionaires are from different parts of the GTA, including Brampton, Toronto, Scarborough, Mississauga, Stoney Creek and Etobicoke.
The victory dates back to a May 19, 2020 draw, says the news release.
