Last week a group of 12 British bus drivers feared for their livelihoods as their employers pondered pay cuts.
But on Tuesday, the men were able to breathe a sigh of relief after picking up a lottery prize of 45 million euros.
The group from Northamptonshire, central England, have played the weekly Euromillions draw for the past three years.
In Friday’s game, their ticket was the only one to match the winning numbers and bag the jackpot.
It means each bus driver scoops 3.7 million euros each.
Syndicate leader Chris Smith called the win “life-changing”.
The men are all expected to resign from their jobs within the next few days.
