This is an inspirational story about five friends who won an astonishing prize with Mega Millions. The people come from humble backgrounds, too, which makes this victory sweeter! Continue reading to discover the full story. 

Edgar Lopez, a limousine driver, is one of the winners. He and four other friends pooled their money together to buy tickets for the massive Mega Millions draw that happened on the 11th of September. The jackpot on offer was $106 million! 

Edgar was the syndicate leader who went and bought the tickets with the team’s money. It was a quick pick ticket bought at Yonkers Grocery and convenience store on Yonkers Avenue. 

“We take turns buying tickets and it was my turn,” explained Edgar. He is 52-years-old. The team waited a week until after the draw to check their results. Seeing that Edgar was the member who bought the tickets, it was his responsibility to also check the results. It was when he checked and realized they had won that an even bigger pressure fell on his shoulders: he would have to inform the players and long-time friends that they were all millionaires and would be sharing $106 million. 

“I told them that something good had happened. I informed them that our team had won the lottery and I gave them all a copy of the results and our ticket so that they would believe me and not think it was some kind of cruel joke,” said Edgar. 

Edgar’s friends are Manuel, Acela, Angela, and Miguel. Their ages all range from 45 to 51. Edgar said that he and his friends have been playing in this syndicate together loyally for about 10 years. “We promised each other that we would split the prize if we ever won,” he said. 

Their winning Mega Millions numbers in the September 11th draw were:

5-11-31-50-67 and the Mega Ball 14. 

When lottery officials asked Edgar to sum up their reaction after discovering the win, he explained with: “Wow! We are all very, very happy. We have worked hard all of our lives and to have this happen to us is simply amazing.” 

As upon their promise, the team members have agreed to split the prize equally amongst themselves. Each player will be receiving a lump sum of $13,102,595 before tax. 

Some of the winners want to take vacations to Miami and France. Other winners want to invest, and the remainder of the winners want to save their money.
