Fourteen Red Deer residents split a cool $1 million after winning the Lotto Max early last month.

The office group got their tickets through the Lotto Max subscription service and on June 5, the subscription came up big.

Karen Dilon, one of the group, said they were just talking about the subscription before the June 5 draw because a previous ticket did not pay out.

“All I could think was ‘Oh my God!’” said Dilon. “Winning is going to be such a relief to some of the people in the group.”

Other people in the group include Ursula Shmalz, Bill Spiller, Rick Saulnier, Jerome Wipf, Pat Brown, Candy Victor, Kathy Henderson, Marlene Nicolas, Jay Pike, Natalie Gillingham, Darren Senkowski, Sandy Reed and Margo Gasser.

No one has immediate plans for their share of the winnings, which if distributed evenly is about $71,000.
