So you might have heard of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow right? How about the pot plant by the door?
For a lotto syndicate the latter was the case. A member of the pub syndicate, Steve, was on his way to the shops when the lotto ticket caught his eye as he was leaving the house. The ticket was in a pot plant by the front door so he thought he might as well take it with him and have it checked out.
Steve says the lady at the counter said, “You’ve won!” He then replied with, “No, you must be joking” she then said that she wasn’t and that he had won big!
The group say they are like family and are not the first group of people to win big while playing in a syndicate. There have been various other winners in the past ranging from colleagues to family. The six friends are delighted and have said that the money is going to help them live better lives.
The syndicate will have to share the amount of £1,093,805 between the five of them. They met at the Queen’s hotel in Saltburn. The women of the syndicate said when they found out they all started crying and couldn’t believe that they had finally won after years of playing. The syndicate would each contribute to the ticket and haven’t missed a lottery since they formed in 2009.
This group shows that persistence and consistency is key, oh and always checking your ticket would help too. Visit GiantLottos.com today to play the lottery online and you won’t miss a detail about it.
