Man wins $291M in lottery while vacationing in Florida, brother wins $7

A Pennsylvania judge returning from a vacation in the Florida Keys this week stopped at a convenience store to buy lottery tickets.

Upon his return to work, he realized he had won $291 million.

His brother also played Powerball and was a winner, too – of $7.

The judge, James Stocklas, was eating breakfast at his regular spot when he checked his phone and realized he’d won.

He then bought breakfast for everyone in the restaurant and called his family to say, “We are going back to Florida!”

Here’s hoping he takes his brother, Bob, back with him.
