Ky. Factory Workers Hit the Powerball

Twenty-two employees at a Bardstown ink cartridge factory may not return to work after Sept. 27.

That's because after nine-years of playing the lottery, they finally hit it big.

These co-workers and friends pitched in a dollar-a-week to play the "Quick Pick" game.

Now they're the winners of a $61-million Powerball jackpot.

One of the winners never thought they'd win.

"Well, I never thought I'd be a millionaire. Would you like to shake my hand? I've been asking if people would like to hug a millionaire. You want to hug a millionaire?" Powerball winner Mary Dixon exclaimed.

Each of the winners will get about one-million dollars each.
