While we dream of winning Lotto at least once in our lives, a lucky syndicate of 11 mates from Perth has won lotto twice due to an accidental ticket purchase!
This lucky group of mates from Perth have been purchasing Lotto tickets together in a syndicate for the past 12 years and had chosen their numbers based upon their group’s birthdays and lucky numbers. But when the designated ticket buyer accidentally purchased another ticket for the same winning draw, they hit the jackpot and actually won first division twice!
With a combined group prize pool of $1.7 million, each of the 11 friends will walk away with $157,474. With each individual’s winnings not being enough to ensure everlasting financial freedom, they do have some exciting plans to spend their personal prize money on repaying mortgages, holidays and even a Harley Davidson.

What a great story! Just shows that you’ve got to be in it to win it.
