A GROUP OF FIVE FROM THE GTA ARE CELEBRATING A $1 MILLION LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN

Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour for a group of five from the Greater Toronto Area! They won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the October 14, 2022 LOTTO MAX draw.

The group members are:

Ketheeswaran Thurairajasingam of Pickering

Gnanakalathevi Amirthalinkam of Scarborough

Loganathan Sanmugarajah of Markham

Mark Brown of Whitby

Raymond Wright of Brooklin

The group of five coworkers who work in warehousing, have been playing as a group for five years. Ketheeswaran was the one to discover their big win. “I had to check the ticket three times – When I saw six zeroes, I was so excited!” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.  “I called the rest of the group members, but none of them believed me!”

“It was a big shock for all of us,” stated Gnanakalathevi.

“LOTTO MAX is now our favourite game!” declared Raymond.

Loganathan and Gnanakalathevi are planning on purchasing a home, while Mark is planning a trip to Aruba. “We’re all planning to go for a fancy celebratory dinner,” said Raymond.
