Welsh Rugby fans scoop the Lotto
Last Updated: Thursday 21st April 2011, 11:58 am
After the weekend, we celebrated at the splitting of the UK Lotto triple rollover jackpots between four winning tickets and now we have even more news about one of the ticketholders. Four rugby fans from South Wales got together to buy lottery tickets for the triple rollover draw, and now each of them is quids in after winning a share of last weekend's triple rollover Lotto jackpot.
One of the tickets bought by the group of rugby fans from the Rhondda area of South Wales matched all six winning numbers in the £16 million triple rollover, but three other tickets each scooped the jackpot. With four winning tickets, the jackpot was split four ways, with each ticketholder receiving a little over £4 million, including this rugby syndicate who now have over a million each after the win.
The four have been playing as a lottery syndicate since 2003, but until now the most they have won is £80. However, their luck changed last Saturday night, as they scooped the jackpot, and now each of them are celebrating.
In addition to tickets to see their beloved Wales playing rugby, each of them plans to pay off his mortgage and to put a new car on the drive.
It’s great news for the syndicate, and no doubt they will just be beginning to comprehend just what it means to each of them. If you had lottery tickets in last night’s midweek UK Lotto draw then it’s time to check the lottery results now!
