DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Members of a lottery pool at an Ohio manufacturing plant are splitting a $1 million Powerball prize.

The state lottery agency reports that a pool of 19 people who work at Orbis Corp. in Urbana matched five numbers without the Powerball number in the Feb. 11 drawing. After taxes, they each took home more than $37,000.

They claimed their prize Thursday at the Dayton regional lottery office. The factory where they work makes plastic products.

It was one of three tickets sold in Ohio that hit $1 million second-tier prizes in that Powerball drawing. Another prize was claimed by a suburban Columbus man, and the third is so far unclaimed.
