They shared in a ticket that matched the five numbers in Wednesday's drawing, but not the Powerball.

Each of the workers will get about $16,000 after taxes, WJAR reported.

The ticket was sold at a liquor store in Pawtucket.

The jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has grown to an estimated $435 million, the eighth-largest in Powerball history. The jackpot has not been won in 20 drawings since April 5.
