Ocean County Lottery Winner Says Winning Was a Curse
The most colorful member of the “Ocean’s 16″ Powerball winning co-workers from the Ocean County vehicle maintenance department now wishes for the days before he won the jackpot.
“Wild” Willie Seeley from Manahawkin and his 15 co-workers shared part of the $450 million Powerball jackpot last month.
Now Seeley’s initial joy of winning a share of the enormous jackpot, about $4 million, has turned to regret and a longing for the more simple days before the win.
In an interview with NBC News, Seeley say there is a lot of drama that comes with winning and they had to change the way they live even though they didn’t.
His wife went as far as saying winning was a curse.
