ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A couple from Placentia, N.L., has won a $30-million Lotto Max top prize that's being described as the biggest jackpot in the province's history.

Gordon and Betty Collins will receive their massive cheque at a presentation Thursday.

Tracy Kenney, a spokeswoman for the Atlantic Lottery Corp., says it's the largest jackpot ever won in the province.

She says it's also the largest Lotto Max win ever in Atlantic Canada.

The new multimillionaires will be presented with their winnings at a restaurant in downtown St. John's.
