Boss gets to share loot after bonus of lottery ticket pays off

The Associated Press

ESTACADA, Ore. — An Oregon pizza shop owner rewarded her staff with lottery tickets for working during the Rose Bowl game, joking that they’d have to give her half of any winnings. When one ticket turned out to be worth more than $90,000, her bar manager decided to share the jackpot.

The Oregonian reports that Vallerie Ballantyne, the owner of Hitchin’ Post Pizza in the town of Estacada, rewarded her staff with Keno 8-Spot tickets. Turns out bar manager Johnathon Davis had a winner.

He decided to split the $92,000 ticket with his boss, reasoning that “it’s a good place to work and she bought the ticket.”

On Monday, Davis and Ballantyne each took home $30,000 after taxes.

Estacada is southeast of Portland.
