Workplace syndicate bags $2 million win

Nine Perth work colleagues have shared in over $2.1 million after claiming the Christmas Day Saturday Lotto Division 1 prize.

The colleagues who had been on leave and left their winning ticket on the notice board in the office, checked their ticket yesterday to find they had won a substantial amount of money. On visiting Lotterywest, they then found out they had won the $2.1 million.

After calling their work colleagues into the office, the ticket organiser and another colleague gently let the team know what they’d won.

“We had bought a few tickets and had won $10 and $28 on two tickets, so we told them that’s what we’d won, how did they want to divide that up?” they said.

“Then we got them good, we said, ‘oh and we’ve also won $2.1 million!”

“It was so good, everyone was in shock, some were crying, others just couldn’t comprehend the win.”

The colleagues who have been working together for over a decade will celebrate with a dinner and said the win has brought them even closer.

The group’s winning ticket was purchases from Canning Bridge Newsagency in Applecross.
