Other winners were workers who were members or lottery syndicates. 7 bricklayers won £70,000 in the UK, a group of 20 store workers in Canada will share a $55 million jackpot and 2 co-workers also in Canada will share a million dollar payout.
Postman Wins £2.6M Lottery Jackpot
This postman must have never thought he would ever win big in the lottery: he had his ticket in his pocket for all of three days and he initially thought he had won £20,000. Mathew Evans win was actually much larger.
