This Halloween there were no tricks for lottery players - but instead there was one massive treat for a GiantLottos.com syndicate - in the form of a massive USA Powerball win!
That's right - while the Halloween parties were in full swing on Saturday night, a huge lotto celebration was taking place at the same time, after one lucky GiantLottos.com syndicate scooped an amazing $50,000 with the 31 October USA Powerball draw!
With a jackpot of $127 million at stake, all eyes were on the US Powerball when it was drawn on Saturday night - and when the numbers 9, 20, 25, 47, 68, and a Powerball of 7 came up, everyone made sure to check their tickets to see if they were a winner. Some kept their tickets to redeem their prize, some threw theirs away, but when the GiantLottos.com syndicate realised they had managed to match an amazing four numbers plus the Powerball, they held onto their winning ticket tightly - and then the celebrations began!
Matching four main numbers and one Powerball is no mean feat - in fact the odds of hitting on that particular combination are an amazing 1 in 913,129.18. But those long odds are no match for GiantLottos.com players - and in particular the winning GiantLottos.com syndicate, whose combination of 9, 17, 20, 47, 68, and the Powerball of 7 was enough to make off with a fantastic $50,000 win!
While reports of the individual syndicate players' reactions to their big win are still coming in, what we can tell you about this lucky GiantLottos.com group is that this is no ordinary syndicate - instead it's one made up of 98 players from 16 countries around the world. Hailing from Australia, the UK, Poland, Russia, Namibia and South Africa, the players put their lotto skills to the test and emerged victorious - going to prove how popular, and how lucrative syndicate play is becoming!
