INDIANAPOLIS - A group of 18 co-workers at the Rolls-Royce facility in Indianapolis will split a $1 million Powerball prize.
The Hoosier Lottery said Tuesday the workers had a winning ticket in Saturday's $60 million drawing, matching the first five numbers without the Powerball.
Winning numbers in the drawing were 5-6-37-41-54, Powerball 26.
Casey Campbell, of Greenwood, organized the "Royal 18" pool and began calling other members of the group Sunday morning. The winners went to Hoosier Lottery headquarters Monday to claim their prize.
Campbell said the group has played the lottery for several years, with members contributing $10 each week.
The winning ticket was bought at a Village Pantry store in Greenwood.
Before taxes, each member of the group will get $55,555, the lottery said.
"It's not enough to retire, but it's enough to do a little something," said Greg Simms, who bought the winning ticket.
All Royal 18 members are first-shift employees at Rolls-Royce.
The jackpot for Wednesday's drawing is $70 million.
