The Missouri Lottery announced in a press release that two (so far unnamed) winners played the same numbers together for 30 years. They quote one of the winners who said “He’s always played the same numbers,” one of the winners explained, sharing that the numbers had significance to family members."

The winning ticket was purchased in El Dorado Springs, Missouri. The Missouri Lottery reports that the numbers drawn on June 25 were 6, 12, 20, 27 and 32 and the powerball was 4. These 2 friends matched 4 of those 5 numbers which made them $50,000 richer according to the press release.

What was the response after finding out they were $50,000 richer? "He couldn’t hardly believe he won" was the response. You just never know when your family and/or friends have special numbers that have personal meaning...that those numbers can come back and make life a little easier for you both.
