The five friends took turns buying tickets and the winning one was purchased by a limousine driver Edgar Lopez at Yonkers Grocery and Convenience Store. The 52-year-old Lopez also had the honor of informing his long-time friends they’re about to share $106.000.000 windfall.

“We promised each other that we would split the prize if we ever won. I told them that something good has happened. We won the lottery and I gave them all a copy of the ticket,” recalled Lopez.

The lucky group also includes a daycare teacher Angela Pajes, a business owner Miguel Acosta and husband and wife Manuel and Acela Hernandez, who work as a limo driver and housekeeper respectively. They choose to split the prize evenly, each collecting a single, lump sum payment totaling to about $13.000.000 before taxes. When asked how it feels to know they will be the ones sitting in the back seat of the limo from now on, Lopez said the following:

“We are all very, very happy. We have worked hard all of our lives, and to have this happen is just amazing,” shared the winner adding they already made plans to visit Miami and France.
