Twenty co-workers in Rhode Island will be taking home $250,000 each after winning $5 million as part of a joint lottery-playing effort .The men, who work together at a medical supply manufacturing company, play either Powerball or Mega Millions every week.

They bought the ticket in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing at Chum's Spirits in Harrisville.

They won the $1 million prize for matching five of the six numbers drawn. The group increased the prize by purchasing a "multiplier" option, making the total $5 million before taxes.

Most of the men say they plan to retire soon and the money will help to make that happen.
