A syndicate made up of 22 people who call themselves the “Two Little Ducks” syndicate have won big in the EuroMillions lottery, twice in one week.
The Two Little Ducks syndicate – so called because their number, 22, is akin to the nickname during games of bingo – won their first prize in the draw on Tuesday, March 3rd when they matched four numbers and won a huge €2,000 between them. However, their luck was not yet over because later that week, in the draw on the Friday, they scooped an ever bigger €500,000 in the EuroMillions Plus edition of the draw. It seems to be a good time for syndicates recently in the EuroMillions with another syndicate taking home £1 million from the March 6th draw.
Back to The Two Little Ducks syndicate, it is made up of pharmaceutical workers from County Waterford in Ireland, and they have been playing together for two years. This marks the first major win for the lottery group. Syndicate member Michael Hart spoke of the moment that they discovered the first win when he received a phone call telling him of their luck: “I got a phone call saying we were one number off winning €500,000 in the Tuesday draw, but that we had won €2,000. So I decided to throw money we had left over in our pot for Friday’s draw.”
Mr Hart said that he thought there was no chance the EuroMillions group would win twice in a row, but thought they should try it anyway. He said that one of the syndicate members was away on her honeymoon in Rome when they called to tell her of their double good luck, and she thought that they were all joking with her.
The EuroMillions winners all went out to the local pub to celebrate together as soon as they found out about their second win, and Mr Hart said that the celebration lasted all night, so that when he woke up in the morning he thought it was a dream and had to double check the numbers again. As they collected their winnings, the EuroMillions winners all said that they were in unbelievably good moods, and talked about their plans for holidays, new cars and home refurbishments thanks to the lottery win.
The estimated jackpot in the next draw on Friday March 13th is £18m. Don’t miss this opportunity and purchase your EuroMillions tickets online at Lottery24.com.
