Two brothers each took home a share of a lotto payout worth almost $300 million – but those shares were slightly uneven.
Senior judge James Stocklas, 67, from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, won the Powerball jackpot of $291.4 million (£206m) – in a draw on March 2, while his brother Bob, who also bought a ticket, won just $7.
James discovered he was a jackpot winner on Friday at the end of a month-long fishing trip with his brother in the Florida Keys.
He had bought his jackpot winning ticket along with friends at a Tom Thumb store in Marathon, at the same time his brother Bob purchased one.
The winning numbers were 12, 13, 44, 52, 62 and the Powerball was 06.
James was having breakfast at his favourite diner when he checked his numbers on his phone and found he was a multi-millionaire.

He bought breakfast for everyone in the restaurant after learning of his win.
He has split the winnings with the two friends he bought the ticket with – after taxes are deducted, the amount was $191m.



He plans to share his money with his family and charities and said he will not be quitting his job as a judge.
