Each winner will be able to take home a staggering $16,666,666.

One of the winning tickets was bought in Quebec, while the other two were sold in Ontario, according to Loto Quebec.
A number of players also became instant millionaires through the Max Millions also drawn on the same night.
Edmonton was particularly lucky, revealing at least three people in the city becoming millionaires following the Lotto Max draw.
Three other $1 million tickets were purchased by Albertans in other parts of this lucky province.
Edmonton is no stranger to big lottery wins. Last year, Cameron Blaire of Beaumont took home the eye-watering sum of $41.7 million after winning the Lotto Max jackpot, while Lawayne Musselwhite won $22 million in November on the same lottery.
All in all, $18 million Max Millions prizes were won.
