The group of friends from Leeds who have been playing The Health Lottery together for years still can't quite believe it. They were still in shock when we called their syndicate leader the third time to confirm that, yes, they really had won almost half a million pounds between them!

Our latest Megawinners are a little overwhelmed by it all, and have chosen to remain anonymous. We wish them all the best!

This gives us the opportunity to explain a little more about how winning The Health Lottery as a syndicate works. Not that our £1 ticket price breaks the bank, it is true that playing as a syndicate is a cost-effective way to play. You can read more about the practical benefits here . More players usually means more tickets, which also means more money raised to support vital health projects all over Great Britain.

Of course, the single best thing about playing The Big Win with friends is that if you win big, you win together!
