Sally Berger and Peggy Minnich from Oak Harbor have been friends for 35 years. The lottery players agreed years ago to split any winnings they might receive.
Berger recently checked her Quinto ticket minutes before a lunch date with Minnich and discovered they had won $680,000.
As agreed, they’ll split the prize.
The Oak Harbor 7-Eleven store that sold the winning ticket gets $6,800.
