20 Costco Workers Quit Their Jobs Share A $202 Million Powerball Jackpot

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

costco employees win jackpot

Any Costco employees who didn't join that pool must be KICKING themselves right now!

20 workers at a Long Island Costco each put in $5 toward the lottery, and the group just won a $201.9 million Powerball jackpot! WOWSA!

The winning employees went for a lump sum payout instead of receiving winnings over a 20-year period, so they'll be bringing home $70.2 million after taxes.

No word yet on whether or not there will be massive job fair at their Costco soon, because the group hasn't decided if they're going to quit their jobs or not.

Here's what winner Kim Karkota had to say about it:

“We’re all dedicated to making our money last, and just to breathe easy and have a happy life."

That's certainly mature thinking, but def do SOMETHING fun with that money too! Perhaps a Hawaii vacation with loved ones?

…OR they could go on a massive shopping spree and buy out EVERYTHING from their Costco! Gotta love those oversized barrels of cheese balls. Ha!

What would U do with $3.51 million??? And yes, that's 1/20th of $70.2 mil.
