Mattress Factory Syndicate Scores Powerball Win

A lottery syndicate composed of mattress factory workers from Innovate Mattress Solutions in Winfield, West Virginia, had their lottery dreams answered when they scored a $1 million US Powerball win.

Each member of the "IMS Dreamers" syndicate will receive about $57,000 and although this is not enough to warrant an early retirement the winners agree it will make life easier.

Company payroll manager, Kristen Anderson, has only been working at IMS for a few weeks and faced a long commute to work each day, in a car that only returned 12 miles to the gallon, so she has already found a good use for her Powerball winnings. "I just bought a car today," she said.
