UK Woman's Lottery Nightmare
Pregnant Woman Misses Out On Euromillions
A British woman is suing her former colleagues who won the £28.8 million ($AU47.2) jackpot in the EuroMillions lottery game.
The ten staff from a recruitment firm in Liverpool, England claimed the prize on Tuesday.
Unfortunately for Louisa Whitby she was ill with morning sickness on the day the ticket was purchased and did not pay her £2 in to the syndicate.
|Speaking to the Daily Mail she said: “I’ve paid into that syndicate every week for the past two years, but last week I was off work with morning sickness… When I came back in this week, I said I still wanted to pay in, but they said I should just buy some lucky dips with the money instead. That money will never buy them happiness. I considered them my friends, but I can never speak to them again.”
Her lawyer says she is hoping to take a cut of the money by taking the winners to the high court.
The other ten members of the syndicate stipulated that they would like to remain anonymous.
A worker at the firm confirmed to the BBC that since winning the jackpot all the winners had left their jobs and the office was now ‘deserted’.
A dream and a nightmare all wrapped up in one little story.
