Schnucks warehouse workers split modest lottery jackpot
ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – With the lottery jackpots reach sizable amounts, friends or co-workers will often pool their money and buy several tickets as a group, with the thinking being if just one set of numbers hits, the whole group wins.
Ten employees in the floral department of Schnucks warehouse will be splitting a $5,000 prize following the June 28 Mega Millions drawing. The group matched four white-ball numbers and the Mega Ball in the drawing.
At the time of the drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot was $390 million.
The winning numbers were: 15, 17, 20, 35, 55, and the Mega Ball was 7.
Nobody won the full Mega Millions jackpot in the June 28 drawing. However, a ticket sold in Cambridge City, Indiana matched all the numbers for a recent July drawing. That winner will claim $536 million before taxes.
