27 Grimsby workers were among 25 lucky ticket holders to walk away with a £1 million prize in the first EuroMillions Mega Friday draw. The group had been placing their entries together for the past eight years without much success, until last Friday. Each of them will walk away with about £40,000.
Though the EuroMillions syndicate members have asked to remain anonymous, one of them commented that he was both delighted and stunned by the win. He says he may keep his share in the bank till he decides how he wants to use it. Part of their prize is a luxury trip for eight people to Richard Branson’s private island. They decided to take the cash equivalent in order to ensure fair distribution of their prize.
