Sometimes being nice to your siblings pays off, and other times it leaves you being the butt-end of a joke. For Bob Stocklas, it was kind of both.
Bob and his brother, James, were vacationing with their family and friends when they decided to buy some Powerball tickets. It was a shot in the dark, but who doesn't want to hit that jackpot?
The day the Powerball numbers were drawn, James was at his favorite restaurant getting breakfast. He checked the numbers on his phone and realized he had won the lottery! James bought breakfast for everyone in the restaurant and called his family.
"Then it was chaos in the restaurant," James said. "I looked at [my friend] and we were jumping up and down."
As it turns out, Bob had also won the lottery. Combined, the brothers won $291 million. But one of the brothers had it a little better than the other.
