Fourteen members of a lottery playing syndicate at the Bath Iron Works in Maine has had little luck playing the Powerball. Perhaps this is the reason they tried the Mega Millions, and even paying for a $1 multiplier. That has proven to be a very smart move.
The group, who call themselves “Harding’s Maintenance crew,” have just won $3 million; the multiplier option tripled their $1 million prize. Now, even with 14 people sharing, each of them will receive $214,285 before taxes.
The syndicate purchased their winning ticket from the Cumberland Farms store in Woolwich.
