Guiness World Record Set For Largest Human Playing Card

Casinos are always looking to garner as much publicity and hype as they can. There is no industry that spends so much millions on publicity campaigns and marketing in order to attract as many punters as possible. Whether it be free giveaways or welcome promotions, casinos are always looking to entertain and enthrall their audiences.

Recruitment Firm Need Staff After Workers Win £28 Million In EuroMillions Lotto

Except for a few disturbed people, most of us fantasize about winning the lottery and never going back to the daily grind of our nine to five jobs. For a group of ten workers at a recruitment center in Liverpool this is exactly what happened. The lucky ten were part of a syndicate that won a massive £28 million jackpot in the EuroMillions Lotto. Lottery syndicates at workplaces are popular exactly for this reason as you increase your chances to gamble on a life changing jackpot. For one of the syndicate members this lottery win has a bitter taste. Louise Whitby who is pregnant was a regular contributor to the syndicate for two years with her weekly £2 contribution. However due to morning sickness she missed work and was unable to give her usual £2. When she returned to work after feeling better she was surprised to see her 10 co-workers “missing in action” after the winning numbers were announced. The 31 year-old understandably feels aggrieved to say the least and has already hired a lawyer to get their hands on the share of the jackpot. She was distraught and disappointed with her colleague’s behavior and said,” That money will never buy them happiness. I considered them my friends, but I can never speak to them again. ‘I was away because I’m pregnant with my first child, it doesn’t get worse than that. I don’t think I can face working there ever again.” The thought of missing out on such a jackpot would drive most of us crazy. It will be interesting to see how this story transpires but I would rather have never won than see this fortune disappear before my...
