Manhattan Syndicate Wins $58 million Mega Millions Jackpot

There will always be power in numbers. A group of 16 co-workers from a biotech company in New York have been discovered as the winners of the massive prize of $58 million from the Mega Millions prize on the 24th of March 2015.  Read further to find out the full details of this glorious story. 

It took a good few couple of hours for the winners to believe that they had actually won the massive jackpot prize. The syndicate discovered the win whilst at work, and, making the most of their office situation, they decided to take it upon themselves and double checked their results on everyone’s computers.

“We went from one person’s computer to another’s checking each person’s scan of the ticket because we wanted to be absolutely sure,” said Evelyn Harrison, who is the Chief Operating officer of Ophthotech Corporation where all the winners are currently working. 

These passionate lotto players have been dreaming for a win for years. They have been in the syndicate together for a very long time, since 2010 to be precise, from their office in Penn Plaza. They would each take turns buying a set of multi-state lotto tickets. They all used a different story each time they went out to purchase tickets. 

This week, the players decided to buy their tickets from Carlton Crads, which is in the same building as their office, funny enough! They bought their destined tickets on the 24th of March 2015. 

Ms Harrison, one of the syndicate members said, “There was a lot of buzz around the office following the drawing as everyone learned the jackpot winner was sold in our building.” She then further added that it was at this point during the buzz that was going on, that they decided to check their own numbers. “Once we were convinced, we sent an email to everyone else to tell them to check out the winning numbers for themselves.” 

Some information on the syndicate: The Mega Millions players come from many different parts of New York. These include Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx, as well as winners from New Jersey and even California. These lucky winners are the second New York Mega Millions jackpot winners in just less than a month. A $127 million jackpot was won at the end of February. 

“As you can imagine, we were all in a little bit of disbelief, “said one lucky player by the name of Kevin Berth. Apparently, because not everyone was working at the same time, it took a while for the news to get around to the other syndicate players. After the news finally managed to reach everyone, according to Matthew Jung, “The energy in the office was incredible.” 

The lucky syndicate winners of the Mega Millions lottery received a lump sum payment of $58 million. Each office worker will receive $1.65 million after taxes, and they have all vowed to look after each other and make sure everyone stays grounded and that the win does not go to their heads. 

Ms. Harrison emphasized the point that they won’t let anyone get carried away, and they will always be there for each other if anyone needs any help.
