Would you like to see what the joy of winning the lottery really looks like? Watch this!
The video shows the moment when Melanie tells seven people she plays the lottery with that they hit the jackpot. In a moment there was a lot of shouting, jumping and hugging. The 8-strong syndicate had won a $1 million lottery prize, making each member $125,000 richer. But that is only half the story.
Melanie, who holds the ticket was told at a squash club that someone who’d bought a ticket at the local New World Supermarket had won the lottery. The friend told her to check the results, which she did. When they realized she had won, they gave a loud cheer. But none of the 7 other members of the syndicate knew. So Melanie gathered them that morning for the big surprise.
The group had been purchasing a triple dip ticket for every draw for a year before they won.
