Check Your Lottery Tickets: $842M Powerball jackpot ticket sold in Michigan

A ticket winning a $1 million Powerball prize was sold at Green Meadows Exxon at 6762 Riggs Road in Hyattsville, the Maryland Lottery said in a release.

Monday night’s jackpot-winning Powerball ticket was sold at Food Castle, a family-owned convenience store at 3035 E. Grand Blanc Road in Grand Blanc.

“It’s good to have a Michigan winner,” said Michigan Lottery spokesman Jake Harris.

Powerball drew numbers for its fifth-largest jackpot in history – $842.4 million – on New Year’s Day.

The winning numbers were 12, 21, 42, 44, 49, and the Powerball was 1.

After all tickets were sold, the jackpot soared to a substantial $842.4 million with a cash value of $425.2 million. This jackpot was the fifth largest in Powerball history and the tenth largest U.S. lottery jackpot, according to Powerball.

 

At Food Castle, employees are awed by the win.

“It’s crazy, it’s weird to think that it happened here in Michigan — and in Genesee County,” said Jacob Nannoshi, manager of Food Castle and owner Bill Nannoshi’s son. “I even lose on these things, so it’s nice to hear it finally went to someone in Michigan.”

In Michigan, winners of multistate lottery jackpots, such as Powerball and Mega Millions, are required to make their identities public. After claiming their prize, winners’ names are publicly released.
