It sometimes happens that after matching one or two consecutive numbers, your mind gets so excited and starts hallucinating the rest of the numbers on the paper. This is just what happened with one very excited crew at a restaurant in New Jersey. Many tears of joy were shed, but the story has a very sad twist at the end. Read further to find out what happened.
Upon reading the ticket, one worker even up and quit his job after they saw that they matched all the winning Powerball numbers for a ticket they bought with their office syndicate.
Unfortunately, the story turns sour when they realized that it wasn’t the winning numbers of the €1, 3 billion jackpot, but the numbers for a winning jackpot on a wrong day.
A video can be seen from Grissini’s Restaurant in Englewood Cliff. In the video, you can see servers, cooks, and bartenders celebrating after reading the lottery numbers.
The ticket they had bought at the time was for Saturday. Their numbers were: 2-11-47-62-63 with Powerball number 17.
These numbers were an exact match for Wednesday’s $528 million prizes. But that day had long come and gone. Which is why the jackpot kept rolling to the massive record amount won yesterday.
The workers are seen on video reading through numbers when another suddenly shouts “Yes!” with each successive match of winning numbers. Too bad it was for the wrong day… After the person finished reading the whole ticket and announces that they have won Powerball, the whole restaurant explodes with joy and cheering. You can see them all hopping and hollering even, still thinking they had won the jackpot. They were all hugging each other and wiping away tears.
This just brings tears to our eyes knowing that they were sorely mistaken…Can you imagine the disappointment? It isn’t clear when exactly they discovered their mistake.
“I still can’t believe it,” said one of the distraught workers. “What a feeling. It felt so real and so true. Like it was meant to be happening to all of us,” he added.
