The first was an $8,435,999 jackpot in the September 26 draw.
The September 30 winners will now split the prize six ways.
After collecting their winnings at the Loto-Québec head office in Montreal, each "left with big smiles on their faces, and big dreams for the future," the company says.
It also indicated that the winners' spending plans include the usual, touching projects: "spoiling their loved ones, retiring early, buying or building a new house, and travelling once circumstances allow."
A video posted on its YouTube channel shows the moment each household received their cheques.
Meanwhile, Loto-Québec is still looking for a $70,000,000 jackpot winner in Montreal. They would have won the October 9 Lotto Max draw.
The company is asking customers to check their tickets.
If you bought a lottery ticket in Quebec's Capitale-Nationale region recently, you're going to want to check the numbers because you may have struck gold by winning the jackpot.
Based on the results of Friday's Lotto Max draw, there's a ticket holder out there with $50 million to their name.
The winner played a five-share Formule groupe ticket with the numbers 04-06-07-10-17-27-44 (40).
If this is you and you want to claim your prize money, Loto-Québec's prize claim officers are open to winners in Quebec City and Montreal by appointment. You can contact customer service to find out about the next steps or claim your prize by mail.
Whoever won this multi-million dollar prize seems to have a lucky charm because Loto-Québec has indicated on its website that there is a one in 33,294,800 chance of winning the jackpot in this Canada-wide lottery per one play.
If you would also like to try your luck at becoming a multi-millionaire, the next Lotto Max draw is this Tuesday, November 16, and you could win a jackpot of approximately $12 million.
Lotto Max draws take place every Tuesday and Friday. It costs $5 per one play made up of three selections and tickets are sold until 10:30 p.m. ET on draw nights.
"The jackpot starts at $10,000,000 and, if not won, increases at each draw for a maximum jackpot of $70,000,000," the website explains.
Between January 1 to November 7, 2021, Loto-Quebec said it has paid out 128 prizes of one million dollars or more.

Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.
The government is in the process of filling a Service Canada job bank and it's advertising salaries of between $61,152 and $65,887.
On an online recruitment page, the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) office says it needs to fill 45 benefits officer and program officer positions in Quebec and encourages qualified individuals to apply.
The only education requirement is a high school diploma.
While benefits officers review and process employment insurance applications, the government describes a wide range of duties for program officers, including coordination with local stakeholders regarding services from the ESDC.
Service Canada says it has EI processing centres and "program branches" in Montreal, Laval, Boucherville, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Shawinigan, Quebec City and Saguenay, but that it may assign alternative workplaces to applicants who don't live in these areas.
In addition to a high school diploma, Service Canada is looking for applicants who have experience totalling six months "in delivering services or programs to the general public" or "interpreting and applying legislation or policies."
The language requirement is either French-only or French and English, depending on the position, according to the recruitment page.
Complete details about the positions available and the application process are online.
To the surprise of many, Quebec City also made the Top 10 — and it ranked higher than Montreal, with Quebec City at #4 and Montreal at #6.
This ranking looked at the cost of living, internet speeds, the percentage of young people, levels of safety, and more.
Our province may have been blessed enough to score two top spots in this ranking, but we still didn't make it to #1, which was Tokyo, Japan.
If ever you were thinking of going to study abroad, you may want to put Tokyo high on your list, considering it "ranks well in nearly all categories helping it to come out on top of the study. It has a good amount of high-ranking unis, great food options, and offers cheap tech. It has high levels of free speech and is above average for safety and high-ranking institutions."
