A group of 13 people–which includes residents from Mississauga, Brampton and Whitby–are celebrating a pretty big lotto win.

OLG recently announced that the group had the winning ticket for a Maxmillions prize worth $1 million from the June 1, 2021 Lotto Max draw. They also won $2 on their Encore selection, bringing their total winnings to $1,000,002.

The group members include:

  • James Stewart of Beeton
  • A-Bau Thong of Brampton
  • Andrew Ennos of Whitby
  • Antonio Galardo of Toronto
  • Baney Persaud of Brampton
  • David Chanthaphone of Toronto
  • George Pagiatakis of Toronto
  • John Morrison of Newmarket
  • Paul Torresan of Caledon East
  • Stephen Browne of Barrie
  • Susan Slade of Ingersoll
  • Tony Watton of Innisfil
  • Werner Kehlbreier of Mississauga

The group of coworkers say they’ve been playing the lottery together for 10 to 15 years.

“Everyone was shocked! They were so thrilled when I told them,” Stewart, the group leader and a married father of two, told OLG.

“Everyone is excited to see the money. A few guys want to buy cars. One group member wants to take a trip to Italy with his family. I want to pay some bills and complete some renovations around the house.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Bee-Mart on Main Street in Beeton.
