 Friendship In Tatters Over $2.5M Australian Tattslotto Win

Unfortunately, disagreements and broken promises are frequent after a lottery win between two friends or family members. In this story, two friends from Victoria in Australia have become entangled in a legal dispute over a $2.5 million TattsLotto win in the year 2013. Read further to learn the full details. 

The two friends involved in this sticky situation are Darren Jamieson and John Taylor. Darren claims that he settled on a long-standing verbal agreement with his friend John Taylor that they would share any lottery win that happens to them throughout their life, but it appears that Taylor has abandoned this promise completely and wants the winnings for himself. 

Friends Fighting

Darren, from Mornington Peninsula, met his friend Taylor through their mutual love for fishing. Darren’s best friend, Michael McConnachie, claimed that ‘Jammo’ was the best man at Taylor’s wedding! It seems that the pair was “obviously pretty close” according to sources, but it suddenly all “turned pretty ugly” after the TattsLotto win. It was quite a strange and saddening thing to see seeing that even Darren’s mother saw the pair as “brothers.” 

The win took place in July of 2013. John called Darren to tell him the news that he’d won $2.5 million, but after that, there was no talk about him honouring the promise they had agreed upon together for many years of playing the lotto. On the contrary, the lottery winner denied that there was any ever agreement between them and said that he didn’t even remember Jamieson to be as close a friend as they had “only been fishing a few times.” 

Darren, as you can imagine, was very distraught and he felt betrayed. John, on the other hand, told Nine News: “I’m just very disappointed and appalled by this behaviour; there was no verbal or written agreement in any form whatsoever.” 

Darren has now taken out legal actions alleging that he and his friend had definitely made a verbal agreement in 2006 that they would share the winnings if either of them won. Their plan was to each buy a lottery ticket once a week and share the winnings if anything came of the numbers. Frank Schwent from Missouri, USA, had a similar promise with his brother-in-law, but he pulled through and honoured it after winning a $20,000 Mega Millions prize. In Canada, a man by the name of Darren Doyle shared a $1 million Lotto Max win with his daughter. 

Legal disputes over lottery winnings happen all the time. It’s always important to have every agreement or pact in writing, otherwise trouble will start to brew if you agree on something as big as that verbally.
