It just so happened that in New Jersey, USA, there were four lottery players who would meet every Friday for a pizza dinner together and have allegedly won the massive Jackpot prize of $40 million for the popular US Powerball lottery held on the 25th of March. Read the full story below.
The names of these Powerball lotto winners are as follows: Daniel Blackey Jr., Scott Goldberg, Robert Kerr, and Thomas Regan. The lottery officials in New Jersey have christened the lucky lotto quartet as “The Rocklin Four” simply because they bought their life-changing ticket from Rocklin’s Stationers in Teaneck.
It was just last week that a $2 million Powerball win happened in Texas. These latest winners didn’t have the option to remain anonymous because of their state lottery rules, but they have given a few details about the winners. What we know of Robert Kerr is that he is a former councilman in Dumont who had to resign after being convicted for a road rage incident.
All of these four lucky Powerball winners have made the decision to take the once-off lump sum payment. After taxes they will receive a total of $19,328,858. From this amount, each player will get to take home an amount of $4,832,214 each. Wow! That’s a lot of money. Their winning numbers for Powerball draw date of March 25th 2015 are as follows:
07-19-23-50-54 with the Powerball number of 14.
The lucky stationery shop called “The Rocklin Stationers” will receive a $30,000 bonus for selling the winning Powerball ticket. The store manager’s name is Anush Yanagandula. He is only 24 and he commented, “I feel very happy. It’s like lucky, very lucky to the store.”
Kariyath Basheer owns the store and further added, “People will be more optimistic and feel luckier and buy their tickets here. It’s wonderful; I’ve been waiting so long for that, to win the Jackpot in the store.” Kariyath plans on using the Powerball bonus commission to finance minor improvements in their store.
The men in the lucky Powerball winning quartet have continued celebrating with their families, having Friday night pizza meals since their children were young. They usually pooled their money together to buy Powerball and MegaMillions tickets every week.
The Rocklin Four said that they will most definitely continue with their intimate and happy Friday pizza dinners and they have no plans of moving away from the area. In a statement to the media, they said, “It’s a great chance to have more fun and take care of our families.”
It is always so wonderful to see big lotto winners who put their family first, and aspire to live their lives normally as they usually would, with security and financial freedom in the bag.
