Corks are popping and champagne is flowing in a pub in Essex after a group of EuroMillions lotto players scooped £187,109.
The sixteen strong winning EuroMillions syndicate meet regularly at the Kings Arms in the village of Orsett, UK. The group’s leader and pub landlord, Emma Crawford said that she’s a bit hopeless at regularly double checking the EuroMillions numbers to see if the group has won anything.
“I have a bit of a reputation for being slow to check our tickets, and sometimes I do not do it until several months later,” said the 47-year-old told reporters.
It was just four days after the draw, this time however that Emma decided to double check the euro lotto tickets. Looks as though not only was it ‘V’ for Valentine’s Day, but it was definitely ‘V’ for Victory for these lucky EuroMillions lottery players in Essex. Good job they meet up the local pub as it’s the perfect place to celebrate a lotto win.
Emma told reporters that it was pure chance that she decided to check the tickets on that day, but in retrospect, she's glad she did.
Due the fact that it was Valentine’s Day, Emma was busy preparing a romantic dinner. While waiting for the chicken to cook, Emma quickly took out her phone and checked the EuroMillions winning numbers.
The minute Emma realised that it looked as though their lotto syndicate had in fact managed to match all five main numbers and one star numbers in the draw that took place on Friday 10 February, her first instinct was that what she was seeing couldn’t possibly be true. She closed the app, relaunched it and checked the ticket again and got the same result.
She ran downstairs to get someone to see if she was right and was soon advised to ring the lottery organisers to claim the prize without delay. Once she had done so, she confidently contacted all the syndicate members to tell them that they had won a substantial amount on the EuroMillions.
Once they had been contacted, they all immediately went to the pub for a celebration.
It’s still unclear what ever happened to the romantic dinner for two, but with everyone £11,694 richer, I don’t think anyone much cared, instead the players are putting their winnings to good use by treating themselves to holidays, cars and home improvements.
