A group of ten poker dealers at the Casino de Montréal have hit the jackpot themselves. Now they are splitting a Maxmillions ticket from Loto-Québec worth one million dollars. One croupier formed a group Friday evening, buying $50 worth of tickets at the casino’s boutique. Then they went back to work.
Martin Lefebvre, one of the winners, told CBC about getting the news: “He tells me, ‘Martin, we won!’ We won what? ‘One of the Maxmillion.’ So I tell him, Hey JP, I’ve been working the poker table for six years. I see people bluffing 40 hours a week. So I tell him, don’t try this on me, that’s for sure. But he says, ‘I swear!’”
The big winner, however, has not yet come forward. The second-largest lotto win in Canadian history, a $60-million Lotto Max ticket was drawn last Friday, but the person has yet to claim his or her prize.
