Shuffleboard Pals Win $95-Million Jackpot

January 29, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Six close friends from a Phoenix suburb who play shuffleboard together claimed a $95.3-million multi-state lottery jackpot.

The Mesa residents turned in the winning ticket for Saturday's Powerball drawing at lottery headquarters in Phoenix a few hours after the offices opened Monday, a lottery spokeswoman said.

The three men and three women chose to take the payout in a lump sum, meaning each winner will receive about $5.2 million after taxes.
