Loto-Québec says the $50 million jackpot in Friday night’s Lotto Max draw was purchased in a suburb just south of Montreal.

Spokesman Patrice Lavoie says in a tweet that the winner was a group ticket purchased in Brossard, Que., on Montreal’s south shore.

The ticket was split 20 ways, and it isn’t known for now if the winners know each other.
