A dozen co-workers at Duke Energy’s office in Aurora are sharing in a $50,000 lottery prize, thanks to a little Karma, loads of luck and making sure they bought a Powerball lottery ticket in the first place!
Wrenata Nelson and 11 of her co-workers buy Powerball lottery tickets or Mega Millions lottery tickets twice a week in the hope of winning any of these amazing usa lottos.
When it comes to winning the lottery, we have written numerous articles about lottery players who have done something really good, and in return they have bagged quite a substantial lottery win.
Wrenata Nelson is no exception. While purchasing the Powerball lottery tickets on behalf of her Powerball office pool, she handed the cashier a $20 bill for $12 worth of Powerball tickets. He gave Wrenata $18 back in change.
“I said, ‘You gave me too much money,’” to which the cashier thanked her for her honesty, and handed Wrenata the correct change.
Her honesty paid off big time, and she and the Powerball office pool, who call themselves The Aurora Dozen won a whopping $50,000!
The Aurora Dozen have been playing the Powerball and the Mega Millions lotto games for over two years.
One of the co-workers who arrived ahead of most of the other pool players at work that day, decided he simply had to play a little trick on them. He sat them all down and said he had some news from the company. While they sat there wondering what the news could be, Jeff in a serious tone, asked Wrenata to write 50,000” on the dry-erase board. It didn’t take them long at all to realise what it meant.
The group split the pot with each co-worker receiving their share of $4,166 before taxes.
Speaking to lottery officials, Wrenata said that she plans to put her share of the Powerball winnings towards a vacation to Jamaica that she had already planned. Jeff said that he’s going to buy a brand new set of tyres amongst other things.
Although not everyone in the group managed to say what they would do with their share of the Powerball lottery win, the group is in agreement that they will definitely carry on playing the Powerball lottery and the Mega Millions lottery, in the hope that this is just their first win of many.
