MELVILLE, N.Y. — Twenty employees of a New York big box store are the latest lottery millionaires.

The employees who work at a Long Island Costco store stepped forward Thursday to collect a $201.9 million jackpot.

The winners say they had been chipping in $5 each for Powerball tickets for only about a month before their winning numbers came in during a June 1 drawing.

The winners range in age from 24 to 73. They say they intend to make smart investments, although some conceded new cars and a trip to Las Vegas are in their plans. They say they have not decided whether to keep their jobs.

The owner of a Lindenhurst store where the winning ticket was purchased was presented with a $10,000 bonus check for selling it.
