CNY co-workers win big in Mega Millions office pool

A group of Central New York co-workers will receive a surprise raise to start the New Year, having lucked out by taking a big gamble.

As it turns out, twenty-two local co-workers who recently played the New York Lottery won a $1,000,000 slice of the December 13 Mega Millions pie.

Thursday morning, a representative from the lottery, Gretchen Dizer, will present the check to be split among the newest millionaires in Central New York.

We will not know who they are until the presentation, set to take place at 10:30 a.m. at the Syracuse Customer Service Center in the lobby of the Deys Centennial Building on South Salina Street.
