An Irish Lotto syndicate won a jackpot prize of almost €19 million back in 2008. The exact prize was €18,963,441 and the syndicate of 16 people who worked together at Dan Morrissey Ltd quarry and concrete plant took home the prize, winning well over €1,000,000 each (€1.18 million each to be exact). Th syndicate won the prize by pooling their money together twice per week and buying several tickets together, this is a proven way to increase and boost odds when playing lotto games and many people around the world play with a group. In recent years online syndicates have become popular too.
Will the €19 Million Irish Lotto Record Ever be Beaten?
The Irish Lotto syndicate of 16 workers made history with their win and the record jackpot still hold until this very day, it has not been beat in over 8 years. It will probably be beaten some day in the future as lotto offices around the world are increasing jackpot prizes in order to keep up with player demand for bigger jackpots. This means that we will almost surely be seeing the same thing happen with the Irish Lotto in the future, and records will, as they are made to be, broken.
