Fla. Powerball winners share wealth

PLANTATION, Fla. — A dozen real estate agents who won $1 million in the Powerball are paying it forward and sharing part of their prize with a new employee who opted out of joining the South Florida agency’s office pool.

The twelve real estate agents at Keller Williams Partners Realty in Plantation joined the office pool for the March 23 Powerball drawing, pitching in $20 each. Jennifer Maldonado started her job March 8 and decided not to join the pool until she received her first paycheck.

The team of 12 matched five numbers, and team leader Laurie Finkelstein Reader said they expect to take home about $83,000 each.
