Here is another story that proves what I have been talking about since we started the blog: Office pools increase your chances to win. By the way, LottoGopher allows you to easily create and manage you very own lottery pool. Best of all, LottoGopher will split and distribute your pool’s lottery winnings for you!
Here is what the Arizona Daily Star reported:
A pool of 12 workers from Tucson claimed a $250,000 Mega Millions lotto prize.
The company that employs the workers was not identified in a news release issued Thursday by the state lottery office.
The workers, who bought 60 Quick Pick tickets at the Diamond Shamrock Corner Store at 1895 E. Valencia Road, said they had been purchasing Mega Millions tickets since the game was introduced here last month.
Each worker is to receive $14,583 after taxes. They declined media interviews.
The state lottery office identified the winners as: Danielle Deller; Maria Felix-Gray; Christine Garcia; Juan Guerra; Anthony Jackson; Betty Larsen; Norma Lopez; Rebecca Onofryton; Jessica Peralta; Charles Portillo; Teresa Vega-Murrieta; and Jaime Yslas.
This is the second ticket sold in Arizona in recent weeks that has won the second prize by matching all five white ball numbers. Michael Pettigrew of Yuma claimed his $250,000 prize on Monday from the April 27 drawing.
