Man won $50 million in Canadian Lottery and returned to work the next day

A Canadian man won the $50 million Lotto Max jackpot and returned to work because he said the company would suffer without him.

Pierre Richer won $50 million (US$36.5 million) in the Lotto Max draw on October 6.

He bought the winning ticket for $10 at Super C supermarket in Montreal while shopping with his daughter for Thanksgiving. 

The retailer who sold the winning ticket will receive a commission of $5,000.

Richer said his spouse and his daughter discovered he had won $50 million the day after the drawing. His daughter shrieked so loud that the family thought she had seen a spider.

Despite winning a large sum of money, Richer remained unfazed and continued with his activities.

I walked into the room, and they told me [about the win]," the winner said at a press conference to City News Everywhere. "I said 'OK,' and then walked out.
