There's something to be said for beginner's luck, especially when it comes to winning huge lottos. While there's just as much chance of a long-time lotto player hitting the jackpot, we're fairly inundated with stories of players who've won giant lotto prizes after their first or second attempt.

That's exactly what happened with a work syndicate in Ireland, who managed to scoop a fantastic lotto win after playing the EuroMillions lottery exactly twice! That's some giant lotto luck right there.

Luck of the Irish nets giant lotto win for syndicate

We wouldn't have thought pet food to be particularly lucky, but it turned out to be highly fortuitous for a 38-member work syndicate from the pet food production company, C&D Foods, in Edgeworthstown, Ireland. That's because after playing in just their second EuroMillions draw ever, the delighted syndicate managed to walk away with a fantastic €500,000 lotto win!

Syndicate leader, Helen Whelan, explains: “We only started playing last Friday when the jackpot rose to a guaranteed €100m. I went around and got €2 off everyone. So, we played again on Tuesday, and would you believe it, we won big!”

With 38 members ranging from 23 to 50 years old, everyone has different plans for their €13,157.89 share, some choosing to pay for weddings, some to replace cars, and some, such as Helen, doing "a bit of everything", with "a holiday and a few nice purchases!” Congrats to the C&D syndicate, and if you're ever looking to add more members, we know just to find them!
