OGDEN -- A group of ten people from Utah has taken the Idaho Powerball prize, or at least part of it.

Michael Baca, along with nine co-workers, claimed $1 million in prize money last week after their ticket matched all five of the drawn numbers, though not the Powerball number.

They may not have won the full jackpot, but this is not the first time the group has won at least something. In Nov. 2010, the group won $50,000 playing the same game.

"I guess the third time will be the charm. We've come close twice, maybe next time we'll get the jackpot," said Baca in a press release from the Idaho Lottery.

This is the third group to take money home from the Idaho Lottery since Dec. of 2010.

Powerball has been popular with some in Utah since its inception in 1990. This week's jackpot is estimated at $144 million.
