A group of people from Red Deer are sharing in a $100,000 Extra lottery win.
Curtis Pontius and 21 of his co-workers and friends are sharing in the win, which amounts to about $4,545 each.

The other lucky people include Shawn Purdy, Troy Mireau, Shaun Schwab, Johan van de Velch, Jeff Clark, Scott White, Kermit Purves, Aryn Lesher, Barbara Sinclair, Colin Smith, Robert Ledinghave, Henry Alkhoury, Daniel Skelton, Mark Holmes, James Mulek, Will Mitchell, Chinedu Okoli, Kayode Adebayo, Krista Kosonen, Christopher Nwosu, and Brenda Lowles.
