CO-WORKERS FOR EIGHT YEARS
Darin Fox and Todd Reardon are welders and have worked together for eight years. When Darin joined the same company where Todd worked, Todd tried to make him feel at home and invited him to have a beer after work. Todd said, “After that, we were like two peas.”
Three years ago they decided that they would pool their money and play Powerball. Todd said, “Darin would come to me on a Tuesday and say ‘are you buying this week ‘cus I ain’t feeling lucky.’” He added that the following week, perhaps Darin would buy. So they put in $2 each and usually bought tickets for the Hoosier Lotto, but this time, because the Powerball jackpot was so big, they decided to buy one Quick Pick Powerball ticket.
They bought their ticket which happened to have the winning numbers from the Powerball results – 10-18-41-55-56 and Powerball 15 – from Circle K, 820 Eastern Blvd in Clarksville, Indiana. This lucky store will receive $100,000 for selling the winning Powerball lottery ticket, which is the maximum allowed. Fox and Reardon have chosen to take the cash payout of $111,737,726 and will both receive $40,002,146.87 after taxes from their Powerball jackpot.
