Connie Baumer has been betting on the Idaho lottery for twenty years without much success. When a co-worker at a Wyoming hospital suggested she try increasing her winning chances by joining a group, she accepted. She and eleven other hospital emergency staff agreed to pool $10 each to fund five weeks’ worth of lottery entries. Connie was designated to buy the tickets for the group.
On a trip to Idaho, she checked the results of the tickets they had bought earlier and discovered they had won $12. Then and there she decided to reinvest the winnings in more lottery tickets.
Everyone in her lottery betting group are happy with her decision as one of the tickets she had reinvested in won a million dollar jackpot. Each of the group of twelve are set to receive $83,333 before taxes.
