Twenty Tennessee metal plant employees to share $420M Powerball jackpot

A group of 20 lucky co-workers at a Tennessee metal manufacturing plant will split a staggering $420.9 million Powerball jackpot.

Lottery officials announced Tuesday that the workers from North American Stamping Group in Portland, Tenn., were in for the multi-million dollar windfall.

The cash value of the jackpot is worth $254 million, which would give each person $12.7 million before taxes.

“You never think you’re going to win this lottery, but you do it for fun,” winner Amy O’Neal told The Tennessean.
