"In a statement released by his lawyer, Mr. Baron claimed he purchased the winning ticket using $46.60 of his own money three days before spending more than $520 on 10 tickets on behalf of the syndicate."

Wonder why his winning ticket only cost $46.60 and the 10 losing tickets for his syndicate cost $52.00 each.  Sounds like they price their lottery tickets the way Subway prices some of their sandwich specials - $3 for a 6" and $7 for a 12".  When ever I see those specials, I always order a 12" sandwich as two 6" sandwiches instead.

At $52 a ticket for purchasing 10 tickets, Baron got a better deal buying one ticket at $46.60. The article doesn't mention it, but it looks like Baron may have won his jackpot in another games.

    If Baron's friendship with the pool was embers- its now Ashes.

      If you don't get a copy of the tickets BEFORE the draw, you end up smelling just like another sucker.

        Am l reading this right or is there just one attorney involved in this case so far: His. Where is their evidence that he screwed them over, or is it just " we always played together and if someone won regardless of the excuse" .....we share together? Either Baron has grown an extra pair including another spine in order to face the press & the wrath of his former pool buddies or his calling their bluff by saying " go ahead, try your case because l have all the evidence l need! I look forward to hearing the outcome of this case along with the one from the Bay area where this store owner says that his waiting for his  $ 350,000 because one of his customers promised him that amount. Should be interesting.

          In January,1996 Sergio Martini, a NYC Dept of Sanitation worker won 10.3 million dollars in the Powerball lottery probably with someone else's ticket. He lived in Brewster, NY near Connecuticut & around 15 co-workers used to give him a dollar to buy them a powerball ticket. The only problem was that Martini would give the co-workers their powerball ticket three days after the drawing. And no one ever complained because they were all morons. And also one worker Eddie didn't get a ticket. After he won Martini spoke to a lawyer & he told Martini to give the tickets out a day or two before each drawing. martini worked for a year & a half to get a 15 year pension, kept looking for Marlboro miles & when his mother died he asked everyone for five bucks. You can't make this stuff up!
