Ya hoo, dudes.

This is what lottery pools are all about.

Seven friends, all of whom work at the Texas DOT (in Early, Texas) won $250,000 playing Mega Millions, when they matched 5 of 6 numbers on Mar. 23.

Spokesperson Micah Shaw said he, Larry Skaggs, Jay Green, Brad Swenson, John Finnlay, Margie Poe and Mark Hale pooled $4 a week and whenever he’s in town, he’ll pick up the tickets.

He said he and the six other winners are more than just co-workers who happened to put money in for a ticket. They are buds. We hang around together after work, he said. It’s just our little group.

Shaw said the group of friends all work in different departments at TxDOT, so the news of the winnings filtered through several people before everyone found out ” and the congratulations have yet to stop.

Soon, they will pass out checks. Each person will receive around $26,000.

So…are YOU in a pool where you work?

And why not?
