Friday 13th is known throughout many countries in the world as being associated with bad luck, but online lottery players definitely know better. A lottery syndicate comprising of 13 pool members decided that it would be super fitting to come forward on Friday the 13th and collect their prize.
The lucky syndicate of 13 receptionists and administration staff from Dublin, Ireland collected a €250,000 Irish Lotto Plus 2 prize on Friday after scooping the prize in the January 4 draw.
No more January work-day blues
There’s zero chance that this lotto syndicate will be anywhere close to experiencing the “January work-day blues” this year. Not with their bank balances looking this healthy.
The group headed off to the Lotto HQ in Dublin during their lunch break to claim their prize and they already have lots of plans on how to spend their winnings.
Opting to remain anonymous just like another €250,000 Irish Lotto Plus 2 winner who was successful last October, the group’s leader said that the festive season had once again taken its toll on most of them and that they were definitely feeling the pinch by the time January came round.
“Everybody was moaning about being broke after Christmas,” she said.
This is where the lottery comes in. One minute you’re worrying over your finances – the next – its raining money!
The morning after the Irish Lotto Plus 2 draw, the syndicate leader checked the results of the previous evening's draw as per usual. This time however, there was a notification waiting for her, requesting her to contact the National Lottery HQ! Now we all know that’s got to be good news right? But how much had they won?
“We all huddled around a phone in the office as I made the call. When we were told we won the Lotto Plus top prize, we went absolutely mad, squealing and screaming down the phone. It was such an amazing feeling,” said the leader of the lottery syndicate.
According to the leader, the group have been playing the lottery for nearly two years. There’s also a rose amongst the thorns, with 12 woman and 1 gentleman, aged between 27 and 54.
Now that they lucky lottery syndicate have successfully claimed their winnings, each player will take home €19,230.
While a few of the syndicate winners eagerly anticipating putting down a huge deposit for a house, others want to buy cars or go on holiday.
