LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — A dozen Los Alamos National Laboratory employees have claimed a $200,000 prize that one of them announced to the others in a three-page PowerPoint presentation.

Shean Monahan, who bought the ticket, says the announcement caused whoops and hollers, but one winner thought it was a joke.

The 11 engineers and their administrative assistant had chipped in so Monahan could buy 10 tickets for the Jan. 2 drawing.

Monahan discovered the $200,000 prize Monday night, but decided it was too late to call the others.

But he removed the ticket from his car's glove box and put it in a safe.

When he went to work Tuesday, he brought his co-workers into a conference room and presented the PowerPoint announcement.

Each worker received $11,500 after taxes.
