POPLAR BLUFF, MO - The Missouri Lottery has honored a Poplar Bluff area group that calls itself "The Poor Souls" as the lottery team of the month for June.  The promotion awards Lottery players groups with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month.

"The Poor Souls" is a team of 21 members who play Powerball together.  Members are co-workers from the small engine division of Briggs & Stratton in Poplar Bluff, and their friends and family.

Members have come and gone, but "The Poor Souls" have been playing the Lottery together fors ten years.  As a group, they play $20 per drawing.

Team members take turns purchasing tickets at a variety of retail locations, using Quick Pick to let the computers generate their lucky numbers.  The team member who purchases the tickets has everyone's names and phone numbers in case they win big.

The largest prize the group has won is $100.
