That's right - ten years' worth of family pizza nights eventually led to a huge $40 million win for this four-man syndicate from New Jersey, USA. After pooling their money to buy Powerball and Mega Millions tickets for a decade, and gathering with their families every week for a Friday night pizza tradition, this determined group of friends finally ended up making off with a mouthwatering jackpot win!
A huge congratulations to Daniel Blackley Jr., Scott Goldberg, Robert Kerr and Thomas Reagan, dubbed the "Rocklin Four" after the Rocklin's store where they bought their winning ticket. 7, 19, 23, 50, 54, and a Powerball of 2 was what it took to win on the 25 March drawing, and that's exactly what the lucky syndicate got!
As most lottery winners do, the quartet have decided to take their winnings as a lump sum payout of $26.8 million, which after federal and state tax deductions, works out to a very welcome $19,328,858, which will be split between each of the four equally.
Everyone's first question for lotto winners is always, "what are you going to do with the money", but if you ask this lucky group they'll tell you that they don't plan on doing much - at least where their homes and traditions are concerned. They'll still be gathering for their Friday night dinners, they'll still be staying in the neighbourhood they love, and they'll still be living in the same homes as always.
What they will be able to do, however, is take care of their families and have a lot more fun. That's definitely something we'd like to order too - one serving of excitement with everything on it!
The US Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries have always been hugely lucrative choices for lottery fans - just this weekend they're giving away $159 million and $110 million respectively.
