A second group of Albuquerque coworkers also claimed $50,000 today. The group, "Lucky 5" works in a local IT Department. They matched the four white ball numbers (4, 8, 27 and 34) and the Powerball number 10. They are Gladys Gonzales, Alexander Kenny, Michael Wilcox and Elizabeth Wagner of Albuquerque and Steven Peddy-Coart of Edgewood. They've been playing as a group for some time. Typically they each contribute $2, but this time they doubled their money and spent $4 apiece. Their $20 Quick Pick paid off.
Group leader Elizabeth Wagner reminds players, "It only takes one."
Winner Alex Kenny has also benefitted from the Legislative Lottery Scholarship. His son attended New Mexico Tech on the scholarship.
The winners purchased their ticket at Circle K at 8101 Harper NE in Albuquerque.
