COLLINSVILLE, Okla. - Three Collinsville men have a million reasons to feel lucky.
The three friends claimed last week's $1 million Powerball prize Wednesday.
Lester Belt Jr., 71, Johnny Hall, 71, and William Webb, 81, will each receive $236,667 after federal and state taxes and the three-way split of the prize.
The trio says they are actually part of a seven-person group called The Coffee Buddies, who get together for their morning caffeine tradition. The other four chose not to pool their money.
Unfortunately, Belt, Hall and Webb would have won an extra million dollars for a $1 Power Play. But Hall says they're not greedy.
"We are happy with the one million dollars,” he said. “If we would have added Power Play, we might not have purchased the winning ticket!”
Wednesday marks the 21st time the Oklahoma Lottery has paid a sum of $1 million or more.
