LONDON, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Cash windfall tops off treble for lucky lottery fans
A UK lottery syndicate has scooped over £50,000 playing three of the world's richest lotteries, topping off the perfect week with a £10,000 win on USA Powerball.
The Power Combo syndicate from WinTrillions allows its members to play the USA Powerball national lottery and Italy's SuperEnalotto along with USA Mega Millions - the world's richest weekly lottery - in one single game. The UK Power Combo members had already won more than £40,000 through multiple wins on the all three games, before topping it off with the big win in Saturday evening's USA Powerball draw.
"Power Combo is our most popular lottery syndicate and with wins like this it's not hard to see why," said Lucy Gold, spokesperson for WinTrillions, the world's largest lottery site. "In a syndicate it's the big numbers that matter and this is the most individual cash prizes a single syndicate has ever won in a one week.
"The final total of £51,387 is a very tidy sum to share out among the members of this UK-based Power Combo group, who come from as far north as Perth and as far south as Penzance."
To win the £10,000 prize the syndicate matched four numbers plus the Powerball itself, giving them a third level cash prize to add to top of their accumulated winnings for the week.
WinTrillions introduced international lottery syndicates to the UK in October 2011 with the launch of its dedicated WinTrillions.co.uk site and players have been quick to recognise the massive prize-winning potential offered by international lotteries, with USA Mega Millions alone paying out up to $656 million in a single jackpot.
