The Louisiana Lottery says a group of eleven people from Louisiana bought a Mega Millions ticket in Baton Rouge, matching five numbers and winning $250,000 dollars.
They claimed their prize on Monday.
If the group splits the prize evenly, each of them will be about $22,000 richer before taxes.
Three people across the country matched all the numbers, including the Mega Ball, in Friday's record setting jackpot drawing.
A man from Houma also matched five numbers. He picked up his check on Monday.
