A group of five machine operators from Stalybridge in Greater Manchester hit the big time when their ticket was one of three who shared a £8,850,906m jackpot. The total prize won by their group is £2.9 million on the UK Lotto, which gives each of them about £580,000; an amount sure to change their lives for the better.
The numbers on the winning ticket come from birthdays and special dates. The group has kept playing the same numbers for about 10 years. Now there’s talk of paying off bills, holidays, and new vehicles. All five love their jobs and intend to keep working despite their win.
