        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?

        Well, he was absolutely right about not feeling lucky... can't get much unluckier than that!  And if he passed on throwin' a couple of bucks into the regular office pool he probably needs some money... I think I'd have to give him some of my cut, but not a full 8th share of the entire pot... as for the other six winners... to give or not to give that is the question...

        Heard this today on news. A bad omen for this guy. If they don't give him a piece it would be a crappy thing to do. If it was me i couldn't recover with a bad choice i made.

        Someone should give him a little bit of money, it would make them feel good too. Karma can be a good thing!

        He should get ZIP.  Gambling is all about risk and chance.

        There are 4 others, I think, who usually played.  The winners are considering giving all of them something.  If it were me, and I felt like giving "something", I'd give them anything that was below the million mark, from the gross.  e.g. if they each gross 17,130,000, then I'd give up $130,000.  To be split between all my coworkers that normally played.  Maybe.  Probably.  Easy to say yes when you don't have the money, right?  But after a win, harder to give up.
