Lucky 22 syndicate collect €23,845,060 EuroMillions jackpot

A group of 22 bus drivers from Dublin collected an equal share in a huge €23.8 million EuroMillions jackpot.

The syndicate, which has over 700 years’ service between them, were joined by family and friends at National Lottery HQ to collect their shared jackpot.

The lucky 22 syndicate bought the winning ticket in O’Hanlon’s Spar Shop on Station Road, Portarlington, where the staff are delighted for each of the winners.

The syndicate has been playing together for 17 years and switched from weekly quick pick tickets 3 years ago, choosing to stick with the numbers from their last quick pick ticket, the numbers which ultimately delivered the jackpot win!

Spokesperson for the syndicate said:

"This is an incredible feeling, and to win the Euromillions as such a big group is very special. We are going to enjoy the celebrations and look after each other as a group in the next few weeks.”

Over 50,000 Irish winners won prizes in the EuroMillions draw on 1st July 2016 with the jackpot winning syndicate joining over 550 other National Lottery prize winners who have become millionaires since the game launched in Ireland in 2004.
