Co-workers in Kentucky won $50,000 from a lottery drawing after pooling for more than a decade, WAPT reports.
A total of 17 co-workers in Frankfort, who wish to remain anonymous, won a $50,000 Powerball prize after pooling together for more than 10 years.
The group would have one person purchase Mega Millions and Powerball tickets for five weeks at a time and purchase new ones after checking the others.
The winning ticket matched four white balls and the Powerball in the May 2 drawing.
A woman in the group said she was alerted to the group’s win via phone call.
“I didn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up before I had checked the tickets and wanted to find out about the claims process for the group before sharing the news,” she stated.
Each member will get to take home a little more than $2,000, after taxes.
The group plans on continuing to pool together.
