"The Big Friend Group," as they're known, takes turns each month buying Mega Millions tickets in Idaho, lottery officials said.

The group of nine, who have been friends for 12 years, uses the game as "a fun way" to keep in touch, one of the winners said, according to an Idaho Lottery Facebook post on Tuesday, Jan. 10.

"Each ticket has 9 lines, so every member can participate," the winner said.

To their surprise, the group won $1,000,000 from a Mega Millions ticket they bought at a Jacksons Food Stores in Boise in November, lottery officials said.

"Of course, we never thought we'd win this big," one of the winners said, according to lottery officials.
