Nine co-workers posing with a $60 million cheque

A group of coworkers at an Ontario automotive parts plant are the winners of a $60-million lottery jackpot. Dividing the $60 million dollar jackpot, each person will receive around $6.6 million and are now probably able to live out their best lives without worrying about money. Rush called him back right away and was told the group would meet the next day.

The winning ticket was purchased at Little Short Stop Store on Silvercreek Parkway in Guelph.

Members of the group say they had casually bought lottery tickets before, but only began playing together in the last couple months.

Before their big win, they had only bought tickets three or four times, with group members Mussie Kelete and Ella Nicole Cabrera playing with the group for the first time the week they won.

The group accepted their cheque from OLG this morning in Toronto. "We always talk and joke and celebrate each other's birthdays. And now we get to celebrate this unbelievable win together!"

Each of the group members put in $5 for the winning ticket and are now deciding what they'll do with the winnings. "But I had this sixth sense, like some spirit sitting on my shoulder telling me to play!"

Activists from the ruling African National Congress and left-wing Economic Freedom Fighters were among the chanting crowd. However at least one of the children's mothers, who does not wish to be identified, was furious with the connotations.

Meneses scanned it on the OLG Lottery App to discover that they were the big winners. Some are looking to buy new vehicles, new homes and family vacations to Disneyland.

The entire group has resigned from their jobs but they all have a lot of different dreams to spend the money, including new houses, travel and cars, to just taking it easy and relaxing.

"I've been in Canada for less than a year and so far I've only known work", victor Bassam Abdi said.

As for their current jobs, most will slowly retire from the factory and upgrade their education or look to other opportunities.

Unsurprisingly, the group is totally ecstatic about their win.

"They're happy, but our supervisors, they're upset also because we shut down the whole line", Meneses said.
