A jury has ruled Americo Lopes cheated his NJ coworkers out of a $24 million lottery jackpot from a work pool.

For one New Jersey lottery winner, luck ran out today. Americo Lopes, who took home a $24 million jackpot three years ago, must surrender $20 million of that bounty to five former coworkers after a civil jury found he cheated the men out of their rightful share of the winnings.

Wow, if he won the amount 3 years ago, you can bet he's been planning his finances assuming he's getting the full amount. 20 million is huge difference when compared to 4 million if wasn't being conservative in his planning.

If he got the cash upfront, and he no longer has 20 million to spend, he may wind up in the negative after all is said and done.

It's hard to trust anyone with money. Such a shame that for the sake of money you will cheat on your friends. Better to do it alone instead of lottery pool.
