The Mega Millions jackpot recently reached a record-setting $656-million. This set the country into a flurry of ticket sales and speculation that nearly every media outlet covered with vigor. And while three winning tickets were claimed in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland, many have ignored the sizeable amount of money that's been paid out to those who were able to match the first five winning numbers.
Why does Curry Honda Atlanta care about winning lotto tickets? A group of 25 workers from the Honda manufacturing plant in Lincoln, Alabama recently won second place in a pool that they formed. The tightly-knit group opted to go in on a Mega Millions ticket together, and called themselves "The Lucky 25" in the spirit of fun.
"Just the thought of accepting a check to spend from contributing $10 is exciting,"1 exclaims pool member Wanda McClellan of Anniston, Alabama. And how much will she be taking home? Collectively, the group won $225,000. They've agreed for the prize to be split amongst them evenly. $225,000 split 25 ways equates to each participant taking home a total of $9,000 before taxes.
Reading about a win like this might make you feel a little down on your luck, but Curry Honda Atlanta would encourage you to remember that some of the good fortune from their win is sure to rub off on the new Honda models they've manufactured.
