A lucky Quebecer has won the $50 million Lotto Max jackpot drawn on Friday night.

The winning ticket was sold on Montreal's South Shore.

Loto-Québec spokesperson Patrice Lavoie wrote on Twitter Saturday that the winning ticket was purchased in Brossard by a group of 20 people.

Neither $1 million Maxmillion prize was won.

Since the Lotto Max began, four $60 million prizes have been won in Quebec, the last on June 8, 2018, by a group of 10 people from Drummondville.

About 20 per cent of Lotto Max tickets are sold in Quebec, about half as much as in Ontario.
