“When a syndicate wins, it’s great to see so many people so happy. As corny as it sounds, it does change people’s lives.

“I’ve already spoken to some of the regulars in the syndicate and it’s such a bright light in their lives given what everyone’s had to go through for the past two years.

“They’re almost in tears. They’re just so happy. Some have home renovations plans, while others are paying off a few bills and getting ahead.
