A 22-member syndicate, who formed a coffee club, from Albany has claimed the $10m jackpot won in the October 2 Oz Lotto draw.
The lucky group of coffee connoisseurs won a total of $10,068,267 as they also won a few other division prizes in the draw.
They will each receive $457,000 for matching the Oz Lotto winning lottery numbers 07-15-16-24-38-41-43.
The group of friends started their Oz Lotto syndicate four years ago when they started to meet regularly for a coffee.
“We were all strangers back then but have almost become like a family now,” said the Oz Lotto syndicate group’s leader.
Each member of the group put in $10 to pay for their weekly Oz Lotto tickets. Speaking to lottery officials they said that they couldn’t believe their luck that they won the jackpot.
“Some of us were literally jumping in excitement. It felt like a dream! Actually, it still does,” said a member of the group.
Like most lottery syndicate winners, they all have their own set of dreams that they would like to now fulfil. Amongst these dreams are early retirement, paying off mortgages, and helping their children pay for university.
“It just makes life a whole lot easier,” said one group member.
Their winning Oz Lotto ticket was purchased from Clark’s news agency in Albany.
Their win is the second equal largest Oz Lotto win won in Western Australia this year.
