Mega Millions = Mega Idiot

A team of seven IT coworkers won the New York State Mega Millions jackpot totally $319 million. Awesome for them. But the depressing part? There were usually eight coworkers who pooled money together for lottery tickets. And one opted to sit this one out.

According to a New York Post interview with the owner of the Albany deli who sold the winning lottery ticket, when the coworkers went around the office went around asking who wanted into the pool, the unlucky eighth man (whose identity is unknown) told them he was going to pass this time around since he “wasn’t feeling lucky.”

The unlucky would-be pool participant stood to take home about $16 million after taxes had he chipped in.
