REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) - Thirteen Southern California nurses who each pitched in $10 to buy 65 lottery tickets just missed out on the recent $1.6 billion jackpot - but they’re getting a consolation prize.

The group from Redlands matched five of the six lottery numbers in the Jan. 13 drawing and will each win $49,088 before taxes.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1o2dWK4) that the 65 tickets were purchased at a Redlands 7-Eleven.

A person who bought a ticket at a Chino Hills 7-Eleven matched all six numbers last month and will split the humongous winning prize with winners in Tennessee and Florida. Each will either receive a payment of about $528 million over 30 years or a one-time payment of about $327 million.

Only the Tennessee winners have come forward.
