FLANAGAN, Ill. -- We now know who won the $1 million Powerball prize in Illinois and the winners were not typical customers.

The manager of Bart's Supermarket, Rockey Patel and the local meat inspector who visits there routinely will split the winnings.

The two long-time business acquaintances will share the $1 million prize for matching the first five numbers in the November 28 powerball drawing.
