Thursday 2 February - Nine work colleagues from the Erindale area have started the week with a bonus, after their shared Monday & Wednesday Lotto entry won $1,000,000 on Monday night.
The syndicate leader explained that the work syndicate has been playing Lotto for three years but didn’t ever think they would win a division one prize.
“When I told the other Syndicate members that we had won $1,000,000 most of them didn’t believe me,” the syndicate leader said.
“Our boss can be assured that we will all continue working but first we are all going out to dinner to celebrate this exciting news.”
When asked how each syndicate shareholder would use their $111,111 share of the prize, the syndicate leader said they would all put it to good use.
“This windfall will allow me to pay off my debts,” the syndicate leader said.
“A few of my colleagues will take a holiday and one of them is going to travel to New York to celebrate a special birthday.
“This is amazing news!”
The colleagues purchased their winning System 8 entry from Erindale Newsagency.
The syndicate held the only division one winning entry in draw 3108.
The winning numbers were 1, 9, 30, 35, 37 and 43. The supplementary numbers were 33 and 38.
