Man could have been 8th winner; decided not to play because he didn't feel lucky
The group of seven lottery pool players that won last week's $319 million Mega Millions jackpot could have had an eighth member, but one unlucky man made a choice that cost him millions.
The New York co-worker who regularly played in the office pool opted out on the night they had the winning ticket, according to an Albany, N.Y., deli owner who knows the winners.
"They asked him a couple of times, and he didn't feel lucky," said Jill Cook, owner of Cook's Deli, where the group often comes for lunch.
She said she heard the news through buzz from the nearby office, adding that she felt "terrible" for the man.
This poor guy has bad vibes. Do you think the winners should give him something for being part of the office pool every week. Or is it tough luck you snooze you lose?
