A ten strong lottery syndicate who all work at the Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare received a pleasant April Fool’s surprise: their 6/49 ticket won a $5.8 million jackpot! The good thing was, it was not merely an April Fool’s day joke, they were really winners.
Each member of the group stands to receive a $582,798.41 share of the jackpot. Their prize is actually one sixth of a $35 million jackpot, where five other tickets won the top prize. Some would consider this as return on investment as the group had been playing the lottery together for decades.
