Eight U.S. Postal Service employees from St. Louis, Missouri have received a hefty Christmas bonus from the Missouri Lottery $1 million Powerball Match 5 last week. The group who have been playing the lottery as a syndicate won a million dollars; that is much more than the $12 they have won previously.
The person in charge of buying the tickets says he had intended to purchase their entries from a store near his home, but at the last minute decided on a particular Quicktrip outlet. Each member of the syndicate gets to pocket $125,000 less taxes for a great start to the new year.
