For some, the number 13 is deemed as unlucky. But in Spalding, UK, a syndicate made up for 13 co-workers are celebrating, as they’ve just become EuroMillions Millionaire Maker’s most recent winners, claiming £1 million!

Working together at a food manufacturing factory, syndicate leaders Mark Waters and Karen Taylor were the first to discover the win. Waking up to over a dozen missed calls on Saturday January 17th, Waters initially got worried that Taylor had gotten into an accident. “When I eventually spoke to her, she screamed down the phone – ‘I don’t know whether it’s true, but I think we’ve won the lottery!’ she had exclaimed to me”. Not wanting to break the news to the others until confirming it, the pair spoke to the lottery authorities and then happily shared the news with the rest of the Lucky 13.

Playing as a syndicate for only 10 weeks, each member will take home £77,000. Though this doesn’t mean they can quit their jobs and retire, the winners have started planning their purchases. Waters remarked how he’s going to buy a new lawn mower, while another member is already planning a trip to Barbados. With every purchase of a UK EuroMillions ticket, you are automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker raffle, with a guaranteed prize of £1 million! Next raffle is tomorrow – hurry up and get your tickets!
