A Nova Scotia woman and her nephew have reached an agreement on how they will share a disputed $1.2 million Chase the Ace jackpot. The nephew will end up with $350,000.
Barb Reddick, 57, and her nephew Tyrone MacInnis, 19, each received cheques for $611,319.50 in July, after a $1,222,639 ticket was drawn with both their names on it in Margaree, N.S. After five hours of mediation on Monday, MacInnis and Reddick agreed to share the money. Reddick’s lawyer Adam Rodgers said she will receive $261,319 from MacInnis, leaving him with $350,000 and Reddick with $872,639.
