It's all over.
Seventeen people who work at Viking Holdings in Sedgewick are the winners of the biggest jackpot in Canadian history – splitting a record-breaking pot of $54,294,712.
That works out to $3,193,806.58 per winner.
Reportedly in the four days leading up to the draw Canadians spent an amazing $90 million on 6/49 tickets. Since there are only 14 millions possible combinations in a 6/49 game, I surprised there weren't more winning tickets.
* you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
