The duo, who met through work, were completely overwhelmed when they found out they were going to be rich besties.

"I just stared at it for about two minutes trying to come to terms with it. I showed Mercy my phone screen to show her that we won, and her mouth dropped open and she started to cry," Prince said.

"You always dream about winning the lottery and [it's] surreal when it actually happens," she added.
