Fifth $118M Mega Millions jackpot claim

June 7, 2012 (CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill.)

The $118 million winning ticket was for a May 4 drawing.

It was claimed by 12 workers at Pita Pan Old World Bakery in suburban Chicago Heights.

Four other employees filed suit saying they were part of the pool.

Now a fifth says he was a long-time member of the pool, but didn't contribute to tickets for the May 4 drawing because he wasn't asked.

The lawyer for the defendants says if you don't ante up, you don't get paid.
