Money won’t be an issue for a very long time for these five friends after they won the $106 million MegaMillions jackpot on the 11th of September. After a decade of buying lottery tickets together, it has finally paid off. Read more about their win here.
The group of five friends won the $106 million MegaMillions jackpot in the draw that took place on the 11th of September. The friend who bought the winning ticket was 52-year-old limo driver Edgar Lopez. It was his turn to buy the next MegaMillions ticket, so he decided to quickly stop at Yonkers Grocery and Convenience to grab a MegaMillions quick pick ticket. It was that decision that was going to change his life forever.
The next weekend after he bought the ticket, he discovered that they had the winning ticket. He was so excited that his hands started shaking. He got his friends together to break the wonderful news to them. “Guys, we are all millionaires,” he said breathlessly.
“I told them that something good had just happened,” he said in a statement given to the local press. “We have all worked hard all our lives and to have this happen to us is just heaven-sent. We are so happy,” he added.
The winners in the group are Edgar, his pal Manuel Hernandez, age 45, who also works as a limo driver in the city. Hernandez’s wife, Acela, 51, was also part of the group. She works as a housekeeper. The other members include business owner Miguel Acosta and Angela Pajes, a New Jersey day care teacher.
The winning group of friends matched all the MegaMillions winning numbers. The numbers were:
5-11-31-50-67 and the Mega Ball 14.
The group decided to take the lump-sum option which equated to $13.1 million. Pajes will take home $8.67 million, nearly $200,000 more because he has smaller taxes in the Garden State. The other four winners will each get $8.47 million.
Lucky can find you anywhere, you just have to make sure that you are in the draw if you ever hope to be a winner!
Best of luck to you,
