Julie Saunders the head of the syndicate which won the Lottery working in the NHS hospital celebrated by leaving the job on SPOT after winning 25Million Euros.
Julie took early retirement the moment she got to know about her group winning the lottery the syndicate bought, and was serving as catering staff in Neath Port Talbot Hospital. In fact the whole syndicate working in NHS hospital’s catering staff quit their job where one was already retired. The five were playing the lottery since last six years and luckily Louise Ward was the luckiest one to join the group in October last year and was debating leaving the group as she was to save for her wedding and needed extra cash and had she stopped they would never have won.
It was Julie; the syndicate leader, who asked her husband to buy the tickets on Friday as they all were working ladies. The next day after the draw the couple had visited Julie’s father and was stated by him that one ticket had won the jackpot. She was the one who had not checked the tickets and gagged about her winning the lottery little knowing that the ticket kept in the usual place in her drawing room’s drawer was the winner.
As she reached home she checked the numbers and was shocked to have found the numbers matching the one declared winner. She straight away called David before giving pleasant shocks to other members of the syndicate. The first thing to do they decided was to retire from the work. They enjoyed working there, but after winning, left the space to be filled by others. Each of the syndicate member won five million Euros. The first thing Julie spent her money on was to visit Las Vegas.
Louise Ward now is now looking forward to her dream wedding next year with increased number of people to attend the ceremony than earlier decided. She already bought new tumble dryer after old one broke and new mattress for her children.
Jean Hess the retired member of the syndicate is also planning to visit Las Vegas and also planning to buy new house.
After meeting one Sunday they made the plan to buy the lottery with the belief to become millionaire one day. They used to buy the tickets every Friday and finally the number which won was 5,12,17,33,41 with lucky start as 4 and 9.

The jackpot starting price has become bigger: The Grand prize named Mega Million will begin at Dollar fifty Million instead of twenty five million earlier. The twenty five million amounts were in practice since last many months. So now the fifty million jackpots will be up for grabs for the players.
Bigger Probability: The number of white balls has been reduced from 75 and the number of red balls has been increased by ten. This has increased the probability of winning the jackpot one in almost 259 million which earlier was one in 303 million.
