There are married and there are single individuals who share 17 kids between them. Their ages are between 21 to 57. Eight out of nine are immigrants from Africa, Middle East and South East Asia.

Theirs is a close group who always talk and joke and celebrate each other’s birthday according from their group leader, Ala Hirmiz. And, now they have this unbelievable win to celebrate.

Mercedes Granadino, one of the winners said that she almost didn’t hand over her $5 when it was time to buy their ticket. But she said that she had this sixth sense, like some spirit sitting on her shoulder telling her to play.

The first one to find out about the big win was Fernando Meneses. Mercedes called him early morning on the Saturday following the draw to let him know that she heard from the radio that the winning ticket is from Guelph and forced him to check their ticket.

He scanned it on the OLG Lottery App to find out that he was holding the winning ticket. He actually scanned it five times because he wanted to see the ’60 million, big winner’ that it was showing.

The whole group found out regarding their winning the following Sunday after Fernando discovered they won.

Other group members are Mussie Kelete and Ella Nicole Cabrera who were the first timers to join on the lottery play. Steven Rush who was so surprised that he felt his mind was blown and it felt so overwhelming for him. Bassam Abdi who had only been in Canada for less than a year and would like to explore the country. Tariku Birru has a dream of opening an Ethiopian restaurant. Sampath Pathiraja Mudiyansel plans on buying a coconut plantation in Sri Lanka. A 21-year old woman said that she will study and help parents pay off debts.

The whole group found out regarding the winning the following Sunday after it was discovered they won.
