They agreed to split the profit, WSOC-TV reported.

They bought a $3 Power Play ticket that matched the four white balls and the red Powerball win of $50,000.

The prize doubled to $10,000 when the 2x multiplier was hit.

After taxes, both received $35,625 each.

Families often fight when it comes to the lottery.

A man sued his brother after he claimed his $1 million lottery win, and the two were forced to split the prize.

The Pennsylvania half-brothers faced off in court after both claimed they were entitled to the money.

Ira Sharp said he gave his brother Charles Meehan $20 to buy a Hot Million instant ticket and they agreed to split any winnings, according to his attorney.

His attorney further claimed Meehan tried to hide the ticket to keep the $1 million prize, Reuters reported.

According to Meehan’s attorney, the two never agreed to split the money, but he wanted to help his half-brother by giving him some of the money.

However, due to the court proceedings, he now “no longer wants to help his brother”.

The pair battled before a jury, which eventually decided the brothers should share the award.

Another man sued the state of California after claiming he was told his $63 million jackpot ticket was too damaged to accept.
