One extremely lucky Australian Powerball syndicate have won big by playing together for the first time. What luck! They won the staggering sum of $40 million AUD in the Australian Powerball draw that happened on the 5th of May. Continue reading for the full story here.
The syndicate is comprised of 14 factory workers who all live in Sydney. They became $40 million richer in the Powerball draw that took place on the 5th of May. The syndicate was fortunate enough to have won the entire division, which means they will not have to share the prize money with any other ticket holders. Their total jackpot amount was $40,445,165.
The syndicate team has the freedom to remain anonymous if they wish. Each member will receive $2,888,940. Congratulations to them! The winning ticket was bought in a News Agency store inside a mall in Campbelltown.
The leader of the syndicate was the one who bought the winning Powerball ticket. He is in total shock. He said that the news has yet to sink in and the team cannot believe their luck.
The team is planning a huge party to celebrate altogether upon reflecting on the fact that their win almost never happened. According to the members, their decision to get a ticket was “out of the blue.” They were at work when they decided to make a syndicate and play. “Everyone put some money in and now we’ve hit the jackpot,” explained the surprised syndicate leader. He has plans to retire immediately lie a few other members.
Winning the lottery with your first ticket isn’t uncommon, it has happened before. In Canada, there was a syndicate of croupiers who won $1 million in the Lotto Max lottery. Andrew Norberg, from Connecticut, also won $1 million with his first Powerball ticket.
On the night that the draw happened, one of the members called the leader. They had just seen the results and were convinced that their numbers matched all the jackpot numbers. The leader sprung from his chair, checked the ticket against the Powerball results, and confirmed that their lives were going to change. “The phone call were flying around. My phone was ringing like mad. Everyone was calling everyone in the syndicate. It was absolute mayhem,” explained the leader.
Many of the players were shaking after hearing the news, and others had Goosebumps at the thought of becoming millionaires. One member even said his hair was standing on end!
Don’t forget to enter your lucky numbers to experience the same excitement and exultation that these winners had from a lottery win.
