LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A group of Humana co-workers won $1 million in their office lottery pool. For more than five years, 29 of them contributed to a lottery fund when the jackpot hit more than $100 million.
Every person received a $29,700 cash payout after taxes. However, not all of them who received a check pitched in money this time around. A few of the 'regulars' were out of town and one was attending a funeral. That didn't matter. The group voted to include the loyal lottery players who missed the one time they hit the big time.
They just received their $29,700 check. "Yesterday I called to schedule Lasik corrective eye surgery. I'm ready to go," Jessie Goodloe said.
Others are paying off debt and buying a new set of wheels.
"I'll probably pay off part of my mortgage," said Jyothi Nanjundappe. "Probably a new car!"
Jeremiah Jackson hasn't told his children, until now.
"I have grown kids," said Jackson, "So, I actually haven't told them yet that I was part of a group who won the lottery. I guess they'll find out soon!"
The group's $1 million numbers was just one digit off from winning the $208 million Powerball jackpot.
