4 Steelers players match 4, win $100 on Powerball

Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - They make millions each year, but were hoping for a little more.

But four Pittsburgh Steelers instead, won just $100 when a Powerball ticket they won matched 4 of 5 numbers drawn, and failed to match the red Powerball.

Players Drew Butler, Casey Hampton, Shaun Suisham and Greg Warren tell WPXI-TV they bought $200 worth of tickets for Wednesday night's drawing for $588 million.

1 of that batch of tickets matched 4 of the first five numbers drawn: 5, 16, 23, and 29.

Butler says the players are happy to get half their money back and says someone posted a comment on Twitter that summed up his feelings.

That person told Butler, "You already hit the lottery because you play for the Steelers" and he says, "I couldn't agree more."
