Group of Twenty Coworkers Claim $5,000,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Winning Ticket

June 21, 2016

Group of Twenty Coworkers Claim $5,000,000 Mega Millions® Megaplier® Winning Ticket

A group of twenty men who work together at a medical supply-manufacturing company, claimed the $5,000,000 winning Mega Millions® Megaplier® ticket from Friday night's draw. They pool their money weekly and play either PowerBall® or Mega Millions®, whichever one of those games that has the higher jackpot.  Their winning ticket matched five numbers to win the standard $1,000,000 prize. However, they purchased the Megaplier® feature for an additional $1.00 on their wager, which multiplied the standard $1,000,000 prize by 5, to win $5,000,000. Individually, each group member won $250,000. The majority of the group plans to retire within the next few years, so they said their win will make their transition a bit easier. Other group members are considering purchasing a new vehicle or planning a vacation. The winning ticket was purchased at Chum's Spirits, 94 Chapel St., Harrisville.

Tonight's estimated Mega Millions® jackpot is $333 million.
