A syndicate group from Ireland has won a huge prize on the EuroMillions lottery after matching all of the five main numbers and one out of the two Lucky Stars, which proved to be enough to change their lives.
The syndicate, a group of seven EuroMillions players who all live and work in County Clare, Ireland, are aged between 26 and 55. The Rum for Me syndicate named themselves so because they all share a common interest – their favourite drink is rum. The seven friends have decided not to release their names, but they did reveal that they all work and live in the Lisoonvarna, Corofin and Doolin areas of County Clare.
The EuroMillions syndicate was started just six weeks ago, and already the group are facing a life-changing win as they take home €556,194 from the lottery game. The friends told the local press that every week they have won small EuroMillions prizes, and their winning ticket this week was purchased with the winnings that they had received the week before.
Split between them, each member of the Rum for Me EuroMillions syndicate will take home €79,456, and each of the winners has different plans for how they will spend the money. One winner said that he was planning to spend some of his winnings on repairs to his father’s car after he damaged it during the summer, while another said that they will be spending the winnings on Christmas shopping for their ten children.
Another winner said that he plans to spend his money on finding true love “I hope this will help me find true love – or at least someone for the weekends,” he joked. The same EuroMillions winner went on to say that he plans to treat himself with his winnings, and that will include sun holidays, cars and Sky Sports.
Another of the lottery syndicate members said that he will use his share of the EuroMillions prize to pursue a career in 3D animation, while other members have shopping at the top of their lists.
