Twelve Corby bus drivers from Northamptonshire, UK, shared a £38 million EuroMillions jackpot in 2012. The group, which had been playing the same numbers in the draw every week since starting their syndicate three years previous, said that their "life changing" win had come as they faced cuts in their workplace. All 12 were reported to have immediately quit their jobs but a year later, the media reported that a few of them had returned to work.

Workers at an Australian Toyota factory won AU$15 million playing lotto z in May 2014. The jackpot prize was actually AU$30 million but there was one additional ticket that matched the numbers drawn. The lottery win came just in the nick of time for the co-workers as their plant was set to close down three years later. The winners, aged in their 30s to 50s, were so generous that they decided to share their good fortune with a factory worker who had opted out of their weekly lotto syndicate.

The AU$40 million Powerball jackpot win by a 14-member Australian syndicate in 2016 led to a court case when a production manager at the Sydney plan claimed that he had been shut out of the group and was entitled to some of the winnings of Australia's biggest lotto. The manager was part of the co-workers’ regular lotto syndicate but apparently the other members of the group had set up a second, one-off syndicate and it was their ticket that won the jackpot. A local judge ruled against the man, leaving the entire prize to be split between the syndicate’s 14 members.

Twenty workers at a Quaker Oats plant in Iowa won a $241 million Powerball jackpot in June 2012. The co-workers, between the ages of 35 and 64, all work in the company's shipping department and the legal entity they set up to claim their prize anonymously was named the "Shipping 20 Trust." The syndicate members had been playing Powerball together for years, with each person chipping in $5 for tickets, but only when the jackpot was $100 million or higher.
