Sterling Store Sells 1 Of 2 Winning $122 Million Powerball Tickets
BOSTON (CBS) – There were two winners in the latest $122 million Powerball drawing and one of them bought a ticket in Massachusetts.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Lana Jones reports
State Lottery spokeswoman Beth Bresnahan said the ticket was sold at the Appletown Market on Main Street in Sterling.
“We won’t know who the winner is until they come forward to claim the prize,” she told WBZ-TV in an email Thursday.
The Appletown Market owners will get $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.
If the winner decides to take the prize over 30 years, the total winnings will be $61,450,000. The cash value of the jackpot is $68,365,971.11, so if the winners select the cash option, it’s a lump sum of $34,182,985.55 each, according to Bresnahan.
The other winning ticket was purchased in Nebraska.
That person has also not been identified yet.
The numbers drawn Wednesday night were 1, 10, 13, 18, 19 and Powerball 26.
Bresnahan said the ticket was not a quick pick, so there may be an interesting story from the winner on why those specific numbers were selected.
The last time Massachusetts had a Powerball winner was in the December 12, 2012 drawing.
Rosa DeLeon of Arlington and Reginald LeBlanc of Lexington, co-workers at Costco in Waltham, won a $50 million jackpot.
