The manager of Bart's Supermarket, Rocky Patel, convinced local meat inspector Howard "Bob" Baker t split the cost of a $2 ticket. They bought it at the store.

Their ticket matched 5 out of 6 numbers in the jackpot $550 million November 28 lottery, so they win a million dollar prize. Both men plan to invest some of their winnings in college funds for their children.

Bart's Supermarket will collect a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
