Lawsuit filed against $50m Lotto Max winners

TORONTO – Nine Bell call centre employees filed a lawsuit on Friday against 19 of their coworkers seeking a cut of the $50-million Lotto Max jackpot they won last month.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the nine by lawyer Marek Tufman, claims the 28 employees had all been a part of the same lottery pool at their Toronto office until the 19 split from the group without telling the others.

The splinter group purchased a ticket on New Year’s Eve that ended up netting them the $50 million, but the winners only collected a portion of the winnings — about $1.6 million each — this week after an Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. investigation identified an additional 11 workers who also may be entitled to the prize.
