LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAs11) -- If you’re debating whether an office lottery pool is the way to go, just ask Humana IT workers.  For years a group of them have contributed to an office pool when the jackpots are especially high, but the most they’d won was $16 dollars…until Wednesday night when they matched five numbers to win the $1 million Powerball prize.

Now 29 techies are about $24,000 richer.  However, only 27 of them contributed to Wednesday’s pool.  Two of the regulars were not around; one was attending his father’s funeral.  The group decided to include them anyway. 

While $23,793.11 isn’t necessarily a life-changing amount of money, these coworkers say they can put it to good use.
