LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A group of 32 workers at a Sysco food distributor in Lincoln will split a $1 million Powerball prize.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1mG8pbY ) the workers have been pooling their money to buy lottery tickets for years.

Chrissa Bonow bought the winning ticket that matched all five white numbers along with 31 other tickets Wednesday.

She says the group always hoped it would win big. Every member of the group will receive about $27,000 after taxes.

No one won Wednesday’s $500 million jackpot, so lottery officials estimate that Saturday’s jackpot will grow to $700 million.

Bonow says her group already bought their tickets for Saturday.
