WATERTOWN, SD -
Forty-eight Minnesota Rubber employees claim to hold a winning Powerball ticket worth $200,000.
A worker at the Watertown plant reported the winning ticket, which South Dakota lottery official have said was sold in Watertown. The winning ticket matched the five white balls but not the red Powerball number in Wednesday night's drawing.
In 2003, a group of Minnesota Rubber employees - who became known as the Watertown 34 - shared the Powerball jackpot. Each brought home about $550,000 in prize money.
Powerball is played in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning the $200,000 prize are 1 in 5.1 million.
