Workers at Hibbing St. Louis County Courthouse win lottery

Posted: Updated:

A group of 22 workers at the St. Louis County Courthouse have a little more jingle in their pocket. 

That's because the group went in together to buy a winning Powerball ticket worth $250,000.

The ticket holders matched four of the five numbers and the Powerball, which is normally worth $50,000.

However, the players decided to pay a dollar extra in order to get the Power Play multiplier - making the prize a total $250,000. 

According to the Hibbing Daily Tribune, the winners work in various departments - from property management, court administration, county attorney's office, county commissioner's office, Health and Human Services, probation/parole, the Sheriff's Office, and the Hibbing Police Department.

The group plans to take a bus to the State Lottery Office in Roseville to claim their prize, and they say they expect to receive about $7,500 each.

Group members say they plan on receiving about $7,500 each after taxes. 

The winning numbers were 7-24-33-49-50, and the Powerball was 4. 

Another ticket worth $250,000 was sold at the Voyageur Short Stop in Ely, however that winner has yet to come forward.
