Maryland Woman Refusing To Split Mega Millions Jackpot With Work Pool

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

mega million jackpot

If you pooled your money with co-workers to purchase a bunch of lottery tickets, then got screwed out of the $105 million (after taxes) jackpot after one of those co-workers said she won it with a ticket that "wasn’t on the group plan," you would be pretty pissed, right?

That's exactly how a group of Maryland McDonald's employees feel. About 15 people chipped in $5 for a shot at the $656 million payout, which has been split between three winning tickets after Friday's drawing, and are now furious at Mirlande Wilson for refusing to share the winnings.

Although she was part of the pool, she claims her winning ticket was a separate investment and explained the conundrum to sources:

"We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. [The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan. I was in the group, but this was separate. The winning ticket was a separate ticket.”

Her story isn't putting any of her co-workers at ease. Suleiman Osman Husein, a shift manager at the McDonald's that Wilson works at, contested:

“She can’ t do this to us! We each paid $5. She took everybody’s money!”

Here is where things get inneresting though. Despite calling a co-worker to announce her lucky numbers, Wilson eventually changed her story and told the press:

“I don’t know if I won. Some of the numbers were familiar. I recognized some of [them] … I’m going to go to the lottery office [today]. I bought some tickets separately.”

To make things more confusing, a clerk at the 7-Eleven where Wilson bought the tickets says that the store's security camera footage shows a man purchasing the winning ticket.

So, basically, everyone could be getting upset over nothing. However, if Mirlande Wilson DID, in fact, win the loterry, we'd say she has A LOT of nerve to tell her co-workers she won if she has no intention of sharing the spoils.

Two employees said they went to her home and pounded on her door for 20 minutes to talk some sense into her. After being warned that she may be putting her life in danger by screwing over 15 people making minimum wage, Wilson reportedly said, “All right! All right! I’ll share, but I can’t find the ticket right now.”

LOL! Another great diversion tactic. Let's hope this woman's hearts grows three sizes and she splits the money with the co-workers who helped her win it!

    1. Did they play the same numbers every week?
    2. If so, were the winning numbers included in those?
    3. Were the winning numbers included in a multiple ticket?



  2. 2

    If they were part of a pool then they should all have a copy of the tickets that were in the pool. They bought 75 tickets as a group and all should have gotten a photocopy of those 75 tickets. If they didnt then things are going to get really skecthy and they will end up spending a chunk of the winngings in court battling it out.

    There are plenty of people that go into an office pool then also buy tickets with their family, on their own, etc. She should not have to share. Would be nice if she gave them all $10K but its not mandatory. I bet those employees would be singing the same tune if it was them. Obviously, if the winning #s were on the work pool tickets then its all of theirs to share.

    Re: Babycakes!!! – Agreed! In most large pools, everyone gets a photocopy of all of the numbers before they are called…if there is no photo copy..this gal owes no one anything. If those employees didn't get copies of the numbers, they are stupid!

    I wouldn't expect there to be a whole lot of brain power at work here. She's a greedy cheat and I hope Karma pays her a visit.

    BAD KARMA BABY!!!!

    Well if the story is true, it is obvious that the ticket was with the group, she called a co worker and told them they won, they withdrew her comment saying she bought the ticket alone. Seriously this women is so selfish, even thou it is 15 people they still all get 7 million each, more then enough for 15 people to live very well for the rest of their lives. She has the power to change so many people's lives if she stops being so selfish and start being honest. I hope the ticket is a loosing one and they see the type of person she really is and cuts her out of their lives. She showed her true colors.

    You know what, people play outside of work pools. When she shows the winning ticket and it isn't part of a multiple, then she can tell all her (former) coworkers to get fucked. Just because you played an office pool, and one of your coworkers won on a separate ticket, doesn't mean they're entitled to any of the money. TBH, I'd tell them all to get punched, and move somewhere nicer than some shithole in Maryland. They'll never see her again.

    Plain and Simple: First of all if the security cameras show a MAN buying the winning ticket, then it isn't part of the groups batch of lottery tickets. She doesn't have to share anything! It appears she was given the winning ticket and didn't purchase it herself, the only person that may have claim to her sharing would be the MAN that bought the ticket.



  10. 10

    People who screw people over are cursed. They die of cancer…know so many stories of greedy selfish people dying of terminal disease.



  11. 11

    They should have made copies of all of the tickets for everyone. That being said, this bitch must be the greediest person on the planet. Probably a fat fuck too.



  12. 12

    She better had made photocopy of all the tickets purchased for the work pool or she's gonna lose like that guy in New Jersey. That's what is sounds like to me.
    .
    And it could have been someone else and they brought HER forward. Either way, if there is a copy of the pool tickets and none of those tickets has the number, then she MIGHT have a case, but I don't think so.
    .
    See how people get greedy when it comes to money. God don't like ugly.



  13. 13

    They are the dumbasses for agreeing to a pool with other FAST-FOOD co-workers! You don't see that kind of money flipping patties.



  14. 14

    Well, according to MD lottery officials, no one has come forward yet to claim the prize. Why would she still be holding on to the winning ticket and talking to the media before going to the lottery office first? Doesn't make sense. And now she can't find it..wow! My guess is that she took their money and spent it on something else LOL



  15. 15

    Plus, if she collected at least $5 from at least 15 people, that's $75. Wouldn't she have bought 75 tickets? Would have been kind of hard keeping up with all those tickets plus your own. Something sounds fishy.



  16. 16

    I guess her winning ticket would be a single ticket rather than a group one, but still…LOL

    Re: Jess – She didn't call the coworker to tell them that they won, she "Despite calling a co-worker to announce HER lucky numbers"
    It's her ticket, her money.



  18. 18

    this has happened before elsewhere..
    the judge ruled in favor of the co-workers.
    i'm sure that set a precedent for all the cases like this.
    she sounds like a sneak… hope the court rules against her selfishness…

    She wrong for that and she know it. My hubby's job gives out copies of the tickets purchased. If there is a small amount won. They all agree together to put it back in for another round.



  21. 21

    nig@#s being ni34s..Its always black people that try to screw you over..Since they all work at mcdonalds its no surprise none of them were smart enough to write up a contract of some kind..

    I think there should never be a 'pool'!! There are so many articles out there that one screws with the rest! and here is another one. Some people are just that greedy!! Buy your own tickets!!
    Seriously, if doing pool with co-workers…make copies! put it on a bulletin board so everyone sees it! And have more than one person buying the tickets!! Obviously one person is not trustworthy.



  23. 23

    oh whatever, if the ticket that had the winning numbers wasn't purchased as a part of the pool, then it isn't a part of the pool. she should just give 'em all a million dollars each out of kindness.



  24. 24

    sooo just because you're a part of a pool at work doesn't mean you can't buy YOUR OWN tickets, too?



  25. 25

    She didn't win.

    Re: NookiesWA – Seriously, why do you hate black people so much? What did we ever do to you? Anytime I see u comment, you always have something racial to say. There are decent, civilized black people in the world you know. Not everybody's the same. I just pray folks like you have more of an open-mind. And btw, where in this article does it say the woman is black? I don't know the woman's race but there are shady people in EVERY race so please stop being so judgmental to black people.

    all of the people involved are stupid for not thinking about this ahead of time. in any office pool you copy the tickets so you have a way to prove your case if something like this were to arise. the fact that the coworkers can't prove their share is almost enough reason to deny them a cut. that's just DUMB!
