An office pool actually won the lottery
First time I’ve actually seen this happen. You always hear about people pooling their money together to try and play the odds a little bit, but the winner always turns out to be one person from the sticks of Florida or something.
LV Sun/AP – The California Lottery says last month’s $543 million Mega Millions jackpot was won by 11 members of an office pool that played on a whim.
A Lottery statement Friday says Roland Reyes and the others showed up at its Hayward office on the east side of San Francisco Bay the day after the July 24 draw.
The members declined to say where they work, other than that it is in the financial industry and they plan to keep their jobs. They declined to speak to media or be photographed.
The Lottery says they decided on the spur of the moment to pitch in $2 apiece when they heard about the jackpot.
