Triple Rollover Success for Syndicates
Updated: Thursday 24th April 2014
Two of the four jackpot-winning tickets in the triple rollover Lotto draw on Saturday 16 April were owned by lottery syndicates. The jackpot itself was worth a massive £16,366,436, so each of the four winning tickets landed a share worth £4,091,609. One of the winning syndicates had sixteen members, all of whom are cleaners or former cleaners in the Stockton-on-Tees area and the other had four members who happen to be staunch rugby fans in the Rhondda Valley.
The syndicate of cleaning staff is led by Pamela Clarkson, and has been playing the Lotto for 15 years. The syndicate plays three Lucky Dip entries every Saturday, so each member only has to invest £1 every five weeks to participate. Now that the syndicate has won a quarter share of such a large jackpot, each member will enjoy a windfall of £255,725, which is a fantastic return on their speculative investment.
The winning syndicate of rugby fans also plays Lucky Dip entries, in this case two entries every Wednesday and Saturday. The four members (Terry Roberts, Lance Gifford, Gerwyn Jones and Mike Williams) have known each other for decades, with everyone but Mike having grown up in the same village. Because this syndicate has just four members, each one is now £1,004,902 richer.
We congratulate both syndicates on their triple rollover jackpot success and hope that all of the members involved have a great time as they spend their winnings. The syndicate of cleaning staff have shopping lists which include new cars, new homes and even a wedding for the daughter of one of the members. As for the syndicate of rugby fans, holidays, new cars and paying off mortgages is also on the list of things to do, but the four friends are also planning to visit New Zealand so that they can watch the Rugby World Cup in person!
Those of you who would like to be able to draw up your own shopping list as a jackpot winner can buy lottery tickets online right now, including Lucky Dip tickets which did so well for the winning syndicates we have just been talking about. The Lotto rollover jackpot this Wednesday 27 April will be worth around £7.1 million, and the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday will be worth around £13 million. Enjoy the games and good luck!Published: Monday 25th April 2011
