LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- $1 million in Powerball money has ended up being split 29 ways. And it turns out some of those winners were very lucky to have some great friends.
The Powerball winners are all employees of Humana's IT department. But the kicker -- not everyone was able to put money in the lottery pool this time around.
One of the usual pool contributors was out of town, and another had a death in the family. The winners took a vote and decided to split the money with them, as well.
One of the winners, Jessica Goodloe, says they weren't checking their tickets on Wednesday night's drawing, so they had no idea they had won.
It was when they got together to read over the numbers on Thursday and they heard one of them continuing to say "Yes" after each number that they realized they won the $1 million prize.
To announce the winnings to the group, a meeting was called that was described as mandatory and confidential. Goodloe says people had no idea what was going on and some of them were afraid they were about to be fired.
After taxes, each person will walk away with more than $23,000. But the downtown workers weren't the only winners. The store where the winning ticket was sold in the PNC Tower will also receive $10,000.
Some have already said they're spending the money on family vacations, buying bikes, and getting Lasik surgery.
When they play again, the next time the jackpot tops $100,000, they have a feeling a few more people will be joining their lottery pool.
