Six builders from the town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire have struck it big on their first try as a lottery playing syndicate. And it was only by chance that they decided to play as a group.
Group leader Nigel Himsworth had bought his lottery tickets earlier in the day but as he was chatting with his workmates, two of whom are new to their team, they decided on impulse to play together as one syndicate. Perhaps it took all the luck each of them had to finally land a big prize because one entry scooped a £333,167.40 Euromillions prize.
Now each member of the syndicate is £55,527.90 richer. They are quite happy with their win and with the holiday season coming up, it should make for a grand Christmas for all of them.
