Around 350 people are expected to attend a lotto ceremony where lotto officials will hand out cheques to dozens of newly minted millionaires from around the Newfoundland region. The massive $60 million jackpot was split between dozens of winners, with many of the winners living in smaller communities.
The win is one of the top five wins ever in Canada.
The winnings won't only benefit those who directly won, but are also seen as a great benefit to the communities of the winners; many of them who are seen as poorer communities. "We're on the map right now!" said one of the lucky winners.
While it's currently just speculation; each winner is thought to have $1.8 million each coming their way.
