Pals keep Powerball pact from 1992, win $22 million

A 28-year old pact and a winning Powerball ticket has two bros up north celebrating!


Like, seriously, can you IMAGINE being on the receiving end of a call from your friend and they tell you that y’all won $22 MILLION?


From Click 2 Houston:

A western Wisconsin man will share his millions in lottery winnings with a longtime friend because of a promise they made to each other nearly three decades ago.

Friends Tom Cook and Joseph Feeney shook hands in 1992 and promised that if either one of them ever won the Powerball jackpot, they would split the money.

That promise came to fruition last month when Cook bought the winning ticket for a $22 million jackpot at Synergy Coop in Menomonie.

The men chose the cash option of about $16.7 million, leaving each with nearly $5.7 million after taxes are paid.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in about 292 million.
