The people who win never deserve it.  Hope they go broke soon.

You are a jerk, concretehead.

    That was a mean thing to say!  Congratulations to the family may they all enjoy it!

      Wingding to this family!!! I love reading happy stories.   I'd only wish my family is this supportive with me in buying and researching the lotteries... oh well, they'll sure be happy when I win! :D

          Wow, that's pretty harsh.  It's also ignorant.  Plenty of people win who deserve it and these people seem to fall into that category.

          The article said 16 siblings will split the pot, along "with three children of a brother who died a few years ago." It didn't say, but I'm thinking the $10 million after tax prize will be split 17 ways, which comes to $588k ea., not a huge sum by any standards, particularly when this information is considered: "... jackpot they'll use to repair homes they lost in Sandy, send their children to college and preserve the legacy of their late mother...."

          So, it's pretty easy to see that they'll use that money as a tool to repair their lives, to lay a foundation for the future of their children and build that legacy to their mother.  I'm also thinking there won't be much left after they do all that, so perhaps they will go through all that money, but with a family so invested in each other as they seem to be, they'll never "go broke".   The money might be gone, but they'll always have each other.

          You, OTOH, are just a tool.

            Are you an imported Toad? Are you poisonous as well? This family has survived the turn of the 21st century, and struck a decent size collect as well. They deserve it just for sticking together as a family, despite all the hard times inflicted by Sandy, 9-11, economy, tax man, wasteful electioneering, economy... get a grip mate!

              What's up with "Deserving" or "Not Deserving"? 

              Anyone who buys a ticket "deserves to win" just by virtue of putting their dollar in the pool.  Even serial killers and internet trolls "deserve" to win under this criterion.  I wish we could stop putting winners in boxes like this.

              I'm very happy for this family.  Sounds like they can use the money and will put it to good use.

                      It is really nice to read a story about a "pool"  that is going to share, with no lawyers involved.  It is even nicer that it is a family supporting each other without squabbling.

                        Congrats to this family, sounds like they are always there for each other, money or not.

                        Now what is it about Ocean county and #16 ? remember the winners that worked the Ocean county garage ?

                        or is something about Jersey and 7-11 stores ?

                        I have a 7-11 not to far from me that's considered a lucky spot...maybe I should go there more often.
