The winners of a $40 million AUD Oz Powerball jackpot are still fighting for their money. The dispute has now reached the Supreme Court. The dispute arose after a winner in Sydney, Australia claims that he missed out on a piece of his co-workers’ $40 million
Here’s what happened: A syndicate of 15 members won $40 million with Oz Powerball, and one of the co-workers who wasn’t in the syndicate at the time, claimed that he was part of the syndicate and is therefore entitled to a share of the winnings.
The matter has reached its peak and is now being heard in the Supreme Court. The man who claimed is Brendan King, a father of five. He says that the syndicate owes him his $2.7 million
Brendan thinks he was unfairly left out of the syndicate when he says he did put in money towards the tickets. Earlier this year, the judge froze the entire jackpot winnings until this matter has been resolved.
The problem started when Robert Adams, the organizer of the syndicate, allegedly forgot to call Brendan to ask if he was chipping in extra for $600 worth of tickets. The syndicate members say that they bought their tickets as a one-off and whoever didn’t put money toward the tickets was not going to be given a share if they won. The team said it would be “unfair and unjust” of the court rules in Brendan’s favor to give him the money he claims is his.
Let this be a lesson not to bother sharing tickets with others. On LuckyLottos.com tickets are the most affordable so you can play many times and if you win, keep all the money to yourself!
