CHICO, Calif. - A group of Chico co-workers who hit it big in the Powerball Lottery have come forward to claim their nearly five million dollar prize.
The eleven lucky winners all work at Northern Valley Indian Health in Chico.
Their lucky ticket matched five of the six numbers in the drawing, bringing them 4.9 million dollars. That works out to around 270 thousand dollars each, after taxes.
The owners of Duke's Cork 'n Bottle Shop on the Esplanade will receive more than 24 thousand dollars for selling the winning Powerball ticket.
