Some of the cheese factory workers who won a $208.6 million Powerball jackpot last summer have won again — this time a $10,000 jackpot.

Wisconsin Lottery spokesman Andrew Bohage says seven of the original "100 Miracles" who won last August matched 4 of the five regular numbers plus the Powerball in the July 11th Powerball jackpot and won $10,000.  Fifteen people won in all.

Last year, 100 workers at Sargento Foods Incorporated in Plymouth said they had been playing for three years before winning the $208.6 million Powerball.

Bohage says the group has to take the winnings in cash, but they first have to go to court to legally split them.

Wow, talk about being close to winning the jackpot a 2nd time. Even though I don't think close counts in the lottery, this is definitely one of those situations in which I can't help but ask myself "what if". I bet these people were like "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!".

Gonna win.Big Smile
