Two friends Split a Million!

Two friends Split a Million!

You might have a difficult time convincing these two Michigan friends to adopt the attitude many people have about buying lottery tickets. You see, some individuals give up completely and don’t buy tickets because they believe the odds of winning are just not that good. Sometimes it seems frustration is the only result when playing the lottery. Two friends in Michigan proved this wrong, at least for them. They made the decision to share the cost of a lottery ticket, hoping it would improve their chances of winning. As it turns out, they were correct. Dillan Dybilas, 20, who is from Ubly, and Robert Sopsich, 30, from Hartland, bought a $20 Millionaire Maker ticket together, deciding they would split the amount they won.

Franco, was kind enough to spend a significant portion of his time with reporters to go through all the details of the event. It all started at the end of March, when Franco was leaving work and decided to pop in to Speedway to purchase $10 worth of lottery tickets and even put all his eggs in one basket by buying only Powerball with all of them.
