EDSON, Alberta, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A group of Canadian oil workers say they hit the lottery equivalent of a gusher.

While Western Canada Lottery Corp. has not officially confirmed the winning ticket, the 15 workers who chipped in expect to share the $25 million lotto jackpot. It will work out to more than $1.6 million each, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Sunday.

One winner, Keith Gould, said he's been buying lotto tickets for years.

"Always be a believer," said Gould, who intends to pay off his home mortgage.

The CBC said another $25 million ticket was sold in British Columbia.
