Best Friends Win $50,000 in a Lottery Pool! | A Jackpocket Story


He’s Brandon. He’s Ronnie. And we won $50,000
on a Jackpocket Pool. I’ve known Brandon
for about 10 years now. Not too many people
are blessed to be able to work
with their best friend, but you know
I’m blessed to be able to do that
every day. So I could probably
count on my hand how many times
I’ve physically gone to the store to go buy a lottery ticket. Usually we send Brandon. And then honestly
even if we’d win like $4 or $8 we’d never even
go and get it. You know
it’s just a hassle. I was looking on apps to find a convenient,
better way to do it and I stumbled upon Jackpocket. My first ticket
was a $20 win. At that point, I was like,
man that’s pretty exciting. My first ticket
and I’m already winning. When Private Pools
first came out I didn’t realize
you have to name it. The only thing
I could think of was “Brothers” because he’s damn near my brother. Brandon at the time
was on a cruise and he didn’t have any service so I kept calling and kept calling, texting and texting. So I’m getting
all these messages. I had like 200
or something messages. So I’m going through and I click on this guy’s message. And all I see is a picture
of his lottery ticket that says $50,000 I said, oh my gosh and I text him because I was like,
‘He’s not up at 7:00.” It was a Saturday morning. So he calls me and he’s like,
‘Yeah dude we won that in the pool.’ So I start freaking out. So after our win, our people who want to be
in our Private Pool blew up, man. We can’t stop people
from asking to get in. We haven’t let anybody
into the “Brothers” pool. We have our own
and then a separate work group. We used to wait
until it got up to $400 million before we’d even talk
about playing but now
we play everything. If it’s $40 million we’re like,
“Hey, we’ll take $40 million if we can can get lucky enough
to win it.” This is the $50,000 winning ticket right on the Jackpocket app. This guy’s studying
while I’m messing up. Offscreen:
Say, “You see the actual ticket on the phone,”
while he’s holding it up. You can see
the actual ticket on the phone
while he’s holding… Oh never mind
I shouldn’t say that.
