Winning lottery tickets have been remembered and found in the strangest of places sometimes. A lucky lottery syndicate from the North East in England have recently become the winners of £1 million on EuroMillions.
winning ticket was found in a pot plant after they placed it there to be left safe and completely forgot about it.
The leader and organiser of the EuroMillions syndicate, Steven Raw, is from Saltburn near Darlington, England. After purchasing the syndicate’s ticket, he took it home and put it in an empty plant pot sitting in his kitchen to keep it safe. He forgot that the ticket was there for several weeks.
It’s not uncommon for lottery winners to store their tickets in safe places and then forget that they put it there. This story reminds us of an Irish EuroMillions Plus winner who found their winning ticket in the pantry! A Mega Millions winner also found their ticket in a strange place – in a pile of old mail! It’s a good thing they didn’t throw the pile of mail out!
When Steven finally remembered the EuroMillions ticket, he took it to his local shop to get checked. It was there that he got the news that would change the rest of his life and the other syndicate members’ too. When lottery officials were asking him about his experience of winning the lottery, he said that he was gobsmacked to find out that his syndicate were indeed the winners of over £1 million in a recent draw. It’s one of the most amazing experiences to find out that you have the ticket to a life-changing amount of money.
The syndicate is a group of lifelong friends who have been playing the lottery together for many years. Steve said that they had won a few prizes in the past, but nothing compare to the sheer scale of this recent win. “We all hoped one day we would win the million,” said Steven.
Steven said that the first person he told about the win when he found out was his friend, Rachel Henderson, who was also part of the syndicate. Steven mentioned that the money they won and are going to share equally will make a big difference in their lives. “I haven’t bought anything yet but I’ve already spent it a million times over in my head,” said Rachel.
Now that the team have their money in the bank, they have revealed that they will be holding a HUGE party for their family and friends. They want to celebrate their good fortune in style now that they can afford it. “It is just wonderful to think that all of us are so close – we are all like family.”
