A pub syndicate composed of seven friends from Saltburn-by-the-Sea in North Yorkshire almost lost their chance when their ticket was almost forgotten in a plant pot. Luckily, Steve Row, a syndicate member, found the ticket got it checked at a local shop. That was when they discovered the ticket is a £1 million winner!
The group of drinkers from the Queen’s Hotel. In this case the pub was the big winner. Four of the seven members of the winning syndicate were connected to the bar, including the bar landlady and her two daughters and a barmaid. Six members of the lucky group, who now call themselves the “The Queens Syndicate,” turned up to receive the ceremonial check for £1,093,805. The group will share the winnings equally.
