A Bus driving syndicate are the latest winners of the Euromillion Lottery jackpot. The 12 members of the syndicate all based in Corby have won a £38 million jackpot on Friday night.
This win is the 5th straight win in a row by UK players which is an amazing sequence of wins. The chances of that happening are remote as a large number of European lottery players take part in the lotto draw.
The company that the lucky Bus Drivers work for can not be to happy with the lottery as none of the drivers made it to work on the Saturday. Each of the drivers is going to be collecting just over £3 million.
This kind of lottery win is probably the best type of all as the money won will change so many lives. It is better news we guess when a single ticket wins a massive amount, but we think that a syndicate winning and sharing the wealth around is better for the lottery.
One fact that did not escape our attention re the syndicate was that they had almost given up playing on Euro Millions due to the lack of luck they were having.
One syndicate member dropped out of the syndicate and was replaced. That is the only part of this fairy tale that you wish you could change. You do have to feel a bit sorry for the person who dropped out of the syndicate.
We are looking forward to reporting on further UK wins on the Euromillion Lottery.
