A group of 14 Canadian scientists doing coronavirus research won a $1 million lottery prize.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation said the group, which is involved in coronavirus research at a university, has played the MaxMillions game together for four years. They learned about their prize in February, according to a Friday news release, CTV News reported.
“I had a text and a call from my boss and was worried something was wrong at work,” Rahul Vohra, one of the group winners, said in a statement. “Then the call came in from our group leader, John (Maione), and then the other members. We didn’t get a lot of work accomplished that day.”
Each member of the group has different plans for the money.
