I Agree! "I couldn't believe my eyes," said Rask, a retired electrician, in the release. "I called Carol right away and told her we just won $7.4 million."

From how I read the story sounds like he brought the ticket and from the instant he knew it was a jackpot winner he wasn't hesitant at all to call his friend and tell her "We've won a jackpot".

I've had friends and relatives who wanted a similar agreement with me except they only brought tickets occasionally or not at all and I buy them almost every drawing and I might not be as anxious to call them if I won a jackpot and hadn't heard from them for a while.

Yeah RJ, I've had the same experience.

People who never play the lottery wanna have an agreement to split if one of us ever wins, LOL.

    Exactly, Heard that a few times myself.

     

    Congrats to the winners.

      The good thing is that they are able to share the prize with each other. It's really cool if you have a friend like them. I think I will start to have lottery pool with few trusted friends.
