The West Virginia Lottery introduced the winners on Wednesday. Lottery Director John Musgrave dubbed them the "Fabulous Five."

Lottery officials say the group played the game as an office pool for the first time. They each contributed $5 for a total purchase of 25 tickets.

One of the tickets matched five numbers from the Jan. 9 drawing.
