Delaware Lottery officials say a group of 50 coworkers at a New Castle County company shared a ticket that correctly matched five numbers to win a second prize of $1 million in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.

A female representative from the office pool claimed the group's prize at Lottery headquarters Wednesday afternoon. Each member will receive a $20,000 prize before taxes.

The group has elected to remain anonymous.

The winning ticket was one of 250 Quick Pick tickets purchased by the office pool at the ShopRite of Four Seasons (Glasgow) located on 700 Plaza Drive in Newark.

For its role in selling the winning ticket, ShopRite will receive a $10,000 bonus.

Two other $1-million tickets were sold in New Jersey. One was purchased at the 7-Eleven on Lakewood Road in Toms River, and the other was sold at Kartik Food & News in Cranford, Union County.
