Seven syndicate members employed at an EggSmart restaurant in Durham, Canada began the day on a high note when they found out they had won the Lotto 6/49 jackpot prize. The group won the prize after matching the numbers from the Saturday’s Lotto 6/49 draw. The syndicate literally crippled the restaurant operations after all the syndicate members failed to turn up for their jobs.
The syndicate has been actively pooling their funds and purchasing lottery tickets in the last one year with a hope that they will win big from the popular Canadian lottery game. One of the syndicate members, Susan Pennington personally selected the lottery numbers that made the syndicate members millionaires. Like the proverbial lucky charm, she too was the first to know about the winning.
Her first reaction to the winning was sending her boss a text whose content were ‘can’t work today because we won Lotto 6/49′. Thereafter the syndicate members met and went to a lottery terminal to validate their winning ticket. The $21 Million dollar winning gives each of the syndicate members a windfall of about 3 million dollars each.
Most of the syndicate members plan to settle off their outstanding debts and use the rest of the money for either their personal of family upkeep. With all of the syndicate members lie in the 24 to 52 age group, they have a long time to enjoy their newly found fortune. The last time that Canadian lottery players won a lottery jackpot prize of a similar magnitude is nearly six months ago when Oshawa couple scooped a $50 Million Lotto Max jackpot.
