There are lots of inspiring stories of lottery wins this week. There is a man from Virginia whose fortunes improved with a $3 million lottery win, and a woman who quit her job a few days before she won a big lottery jackpot.
The Irish had their share of luck as a Dublin man won a €500,000 lotto prize and an Irish Euromillions syndicate posted a huge €88.5 million win.

Irish EuroMillions Syndicate Stunned By €88.5 Win
It is no secret that people join lottery playing syndicates to increase their chances of winning big jackpots. The bigger chance of winning comes at a price though – every win has to be split with the other members of the group. That’s not a problem if you choose the right EuroMillions syndicate though as a big win can still be a big win for everyone. A group of Irishmen from Dublin are certainly glad they played as a group. One of their tickets has won €88.5 million from the Euromillions!
