When it comes to playing in syndicates for the lottery, one has to always take immense precaution as to who is part of the team. This story is the perfect example. It is always best to write down on paper who is part of the team, and have each team member sign by their name, otherwise, your friend could claim that they were part of your winning syndicate and try to get a share of your winnings. This article is about an Australian Powerball syndicate who now cannot receive their winnings until this jackpot dispute has been resolved.
Recently there has been an issue for releasing $40 million Australian Powerball winnings. The New South Wales Supreme Court is hearing the matter. 1/15th of the winnings have been frozen until the dispute has been resolved.
The syndicate team consisted of 14 players from the Prysmian Group. They all shared the $40 million Australian Powerball winnings, but now a fellow employee, Brendon King, claims that he too was part of the syndicate and has a right to his share of the winnings. Brendon’s lawyer, Lachlan Gyles, argued that Brendon was part of the syndicate for over four years. Lachlan asked Justice John Sackar to place an injunction on his client’s share of the winnings which he should be receiving.
This is the latest jackpot dispute in Australia. The other dispute that has happened over jackpot winnings was a $16.6 million Australian Powerball win. Two friends had a falling out over a $2.5 million Tatts Lotto win.
In this current $40 million matter, Brendon King claims that he had paid $50 towards the syndicate leader, Robert Adams to be included in the draw. They had also allegedly had a conversation before the 5th of May so that he could also be included in the Powerball draw and that he was in fact part of the syndicate.
The original ticket holder of the syndicate, Robert Adams, is being represented by Michal Lee. Robert claims the opposite and denies that Brendon was ever part of the syndicate since January this year. This dispute is affecting Robert and his family because he wants his winnings. It is causing him stress and he said that he won’t be returning to work for a while until the matter is resolved. The trial is set to be resumed on the 24th of June.
