20 Co-workers Split $5 Million after winning the Mega Millions Jackpot!
Twenty lucky co-workers in Rhode Island will split $5 million as part of their joint lottery-playing effort – that’s $250,000 per person! The men work together at a medical supply manufacturing company and say they’ve been playing Powerball or the Mega Millions every week for years. In March their efforts finally paid off!
They purchased their winning Mega Millions ticket at Chum’s Spirits, a local liquor store in Harrisville.
They won the $1 million prize for matching five of the six numbers drawn. They also increased the prize by purchasing a “multiplier” option, making the total jackpot $5 million before taxes. Most of the men say the plan on retiring soon and the money will certainly help make those dreams come true!
Good news for the rest of us, the Mega Millions Jackpot is up to $390 Million and the next drawing isn’t until tomorrow (June 29th), so there’s still time to get your tickets! Good luck from all of us at FreeLotto!
