Some lucky workers at Carol Automobile in Labrador City got a surprising Christmas treat this year.

Sixteen employees shared the winnings of a 6/49 lottery ticket worth one million dollars

"It was a big surprise - something I didn't expect for sure," said lotto winner Lauren Connors.

Connors said there were some very mixed emotions at the Ford dealership when her other co-workers found out about the win.

"Some people are very supportive of us, very happy for us. And there's a few other people who are kinda like 'grrr'...but that's life I guess," said Connors.

Each employee will receive about $62,000.
