    The winners of the Lotto Max would have been found. It would be a group of 27 municipal employees working in the City of Saguenay.

    According to what we have learned, the 27 people who won the jackpot Friday night working in the finance department of the City of Saguenay.

    At the time of writing these lines, the lucky holder of the ticket with the right combination hadn’t yet done to validate his ticket in the name of the group, who was rather discreet in the current of the end of the week.

    The winners will share an estimated amount of a little more than$ 23 Million. If the number of persons who participated in the purchase of the ticket is confirmed, each winner will receive a little more than $850,000.


    On the side of Loto-Québec, the director of public affairs, Patrice Lavoie, has not wanted to formalize the new.

    “As long as we can not confirm the validity of the ticket, we don’t announce publicly the identity of the winners “,-he said. It is the same for the unveiling of the counter where the ticket was sold.

    Mr. Lavoie also invited the group to validate their ticket at a retailer of Loto-Québec or to get in touch with the corporation. A first validation can be made by email or by phone.


    Loto-Quebec announced Saturday that the winning ticket had been purchased in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, more specifically at Chicoutimi.

    A little earlier this year, a couple of the region has earned $ 60 million, also during a draw of the Lotto Max

    The probabilities are low enough that a single ticket has the right combination during the draw of the Lotto Max. The chances are 1 in 28 million.
