Australian Nursing Home Employees Win Lotto Syndicate

A regular syndicate of workers at an aged care facility in suburban Melbourne, Australia, have won the lottery and taken home their share of a AU$1.9 million prize.

Fifty one employees working as managers, cooks and cleaners at Park Lane Residential Aged Care in Croydon North held a winning ticket in Saturday’s TattsLotto draw. Each member of the syndicate paid $2 for their entry and will take home over AU$37,000 for winning the Division One prize of $1.9 million.

“The winning ticket belongs to a syndicate I run for my workplace in the big draws and there are 51 people in it,” said the organiser of the winning group. “So I didn’t sleep at all thinking about breaking the news to everyone.”

“Everyone’s been so excited today! It works out to be roughly a bit over $37,000 each, which we are all extremely grateful for – we’ve got nothing to complain about. A lot of people have said, ‘You don’t know how much this has helped me.’ Some people plan to buy a new car, put some towards their mortgage and take some holidays.”

A worker at the aged care facility said the syndicate includes about half the staff members and everyone is very excited with “a lot of jumping up and down.”

The draw had 21 winning tickets which shared the $15.75 million jackpot prize. The syndicate group bought the 36-game QuickPick from Tobacco Station in Kilsyth and the owner, Cheng En, was very excited to have sold a winning ticket.

“I’m so happy to hear that the prize will be shared by so many people – it’s even better than I first thought.”

“I’ll need a tractor load of champagne for all those winners,” he said.
