The odds of winning were something like 28-million-to-one, but what were the odds that 31 co-workers from a small community in Newfoundland and Labrador would win?

All of them work at the Come By Chance oil refinery.
They include a husband and wife, father and son and identical twin brothers.
Five actually retired as soon as they learned they had won the $60-million Lotto Max jackpot from Friday February 23.
The others plan to keep working.
The lone woman in the group joked some of the men wondered if she’d been drinking when she called them the following morning.
Each winner receives $1.9-million.
They all live in the Avondale area, a community of about 600.
It’s the largest jackpot win in Atlantic Canada and one of the top five in Canada.
