A lucky trio of longtime co-workers are now sharing a $4.8 million jackpot.
The Arizona Lottery announced on Tuesday that their winning "The Pick" ticket was sold at a store at 10989 E. Dynamite Blvd. in Scottsdale.
The three winners have worked together in the healthcare field for 12 years and claimed their prize, but wish to remain anonymous.
A retired Sun Lakes couple won the $555,000 Fantasy 5 jackpot that was purchased at the Chandler Heights AMPM convenience store located at 5050 S. Arizona Ave. in Chandler.
Joseph Waskel and his wife stopped for gas Saturday morning where they bought 20 Fantasy 5 Quick Pick tickets for that night's drawing. The next day, Waskel's wife checked the numbers in the newspaper and their first ticket had the winning numbers.
The couple has been married for more than 37 years. They said they plan to remodel their home, and invest the rest of their winnings.
Joseph Waskel's advice to other players is: "Buy it when you feel it."
