Splitting a $22 million Powerball jackpot after a 1992 handshake
Out of Menomonie, Wisconsin, two friends officially split a $22 million Powerball jackpot that hit on the June 10 drawing. Back in 1992, Thomas Cook and Joseph Feeney shook hands on a promise that they would split winnings if one of them every hit a Powerball jackpot.
According to Feeney, who is an avid fisherman, he exclaimed, “Are you jerking my bobber?” when Cook notified him of the life-changing news. The friends chose the cash option of $16.7 million or $5.7 million each after splitting the cash and paying up on federal and state taxes.
