FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A group of seven retirees and former co-workers from Okaloosa County's health department have won $14.5 million in the Florida Lottery.

Jean Land, 70, of Fort Walton Beach, claimed the money on Monday. Land said the group have played the same numbers for ten years and often buys the tickets at the same Fort Walton Beach convenience store.

The group opted for $9.2 million lump-sum payout.
