The last group of people to win a Powerball prize were 30 people from New Hampshire. The 30 employees from Jordan's Furniture in Nashua, New Hampshire, claimed their one million dollar prize on Wednesday at New Hampshire Lottery headquarters, according to a Powerball press release.

The co-workers purchased the one million dollar ticket at Cumberland Farms on Daniel Webster Highway in Nashua for the Powerball drawing last Saturday.

"What a tremendous moment to be able to award this big group of lucky winners this $1 million prize. On behalf of the New Hampshire Lottery, I'd like to say congratulations to our winners," said Charlie McIntyre, executive director, New Hampshire Lottery. "The New Hampshire Lottery encourages players to take part in pools, as it makes the experience more fun when you can share the excitement and anticipation with friends, family or co-workers. You still have time to get in on the action as tonight's Powerball jackpot is expected to reach $750 million."

Julia Crema, one of the winners, told lottery officials that she was glad she got to share this moment with her co-workers.

"We are all really excited to win this $1 million Powerball prize together," Crema said. "We have been playing Powerball together off and on for years and we always dreamed we'd land a big winner. Today is our lucky day!"
