DELAVAN, Wis. (AP) - A group of 21 co-workers in southeastern Wisconsin is sharing a $1 million lottery prize.

The group recently claimed the prize from the Mega Millions ticket that matched all five numbers Oct. 17.

The co-workers from the Pentair plant in Delavan had been buying weekly lottery tickets for about 14 years.

Anthony Kienast buys the tickets each week -$2 per person per play - for the group of first-shift welders and assemblers who build pressure tanks.

He tells The Janesville Gazette (https://bit.ly/1ADrlZ7) a lot of his co-workers “couldn’t believe it” when he told them they had won.

After taxes, each winner received about $32,000.

The winning ticket came from Stinebrink’s Piggly Wiggly in Delavan. The store also gets $20,000 for selling the ticket.
