Deal reached over winnings

An agreement has been reached between a Nova Scotia woman and her nephew in a dispute over a million-dollar Chase the Ace jackpot that made headlines across Canada.

Barbara Reddick sued her nephew Tyrone MacInnis after the grand prize of a charity fundraiser in rural Cape Breton was divided between the two, leaving them each with $611,319.50.

Reddick has said she put MacInnis's name on the ticket for good luck and agreed to split the money if they won the consolation prize — but not the jackpot.

An emailed statement from Reddick's lawyer, Adam Rodgers, says the two sides have come to an agreement about the $611,319.50 at issue.

It says MacInnis will receive $350,000 and Reddick will receive $261,319.50, bringing her total winnings to $872,639.

The statement says both MacInnis and Reddick are looking forward to putting the dispute behind them.
