YONKERS - Five friends who have been playing the lottery for 10 years won $106 million in the Mega Millions lottery.

The friends were presented with a big check Thursday at the Empire City Casino in Yonkers.

The lump sum was divided into just over $8 million each.

Limo driver Edgar Lopez, of Yonkers, broke the news to his friends: a day care teacher, business owner and a married couple. He said they didn’t believe it at first.

The ticket was sold on the morning of Sept. 11 at a Yonkers Avenue convenience store.

Lopez said despite the win, he is going to keep working for the time being.
