AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Some shipbuilding maintenance employees in Maine are splitting a $3 million lottery jackpot.
State lottery officials say 14 Bath Iron Works co-workers make up the group known as Harding's Maintenance Crew. The group usually plays the Powerball but chose to also play the Mega Millions game this week, including an optional $1 multiplier.
The $1 million ticket was tripled. Now the winners will take home more than $200,000 each, before taxes.
The winning ticket was bought at a Cumberland Farms in Woolwich, 30 miles northeast of Portland.
