20 friends from Iowa, USA, have had their lives changed after they won $150,000 in Powerball. The team is planning to have a big party to celebrate their Powerball blessing. This is their story.
The syndicate is from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA. They won $150,000 in the Powerball draw that took place on the 4th of May this month. The syndicate calls themselves “Rumors 20” after one of their favourite bars in Cedar Rapids where they meet for dinner.
The syndicate leader is Connie Waite. Her husband, Dan, collected the Powerball prize. “We’re leaving here, going and getting all the cheques and handing them out and there might be a little party this evening,” said Dan about their plans.
The syndicate bought their Powerball ticket at Clark of Cedar Rapids. Their ticket had matched five winning Powerball numbers for the $361.5 million Powerball draw. The Powerball numbers were:
30-47-57-66-69 and the Powerball 3.
This Powerball win is the latest to have happened in Iowa. All of the syndicate members in this winning team come from Cedar Rapids, except for four who come from Solon, Swisher, Central City, and Vinton. Their ages range from 40 through to 65. All of them work in various professions like construction, factories, and even for the government.
It isn’t known if they are going to quit their jobs, but it doesn’t look like it seeing that the prize still has to be split amongst all twenty members which means each person will be left with $7500 before taxes.
The Powerball team have bene playing the lottery together for two years and they’ve had a few wins in the range of $300 and $400. The leader, Connie, said the win is “really neat.”
Her husband Dan was the one who discovered their win. Connie couldn’t check the tickets because she was still at work. After finding out that they had won, he called his wife immediately to break the good news to her. After taxes, each member will get $5,250.
The team says they still want to play together until they get their next big win. “We’ve been planning on this. We sort of planned on winning millions, so this is the beginning,” said Connie.
