That’s a big check: $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Arizona
PHOENIX — It’s time to track down those Powerball tickets, Arizona. One of them out there is worth a cool $1 million.
The Arizona Lottery said the big-prize ticket was sold for Saturday’s drawing at a QuickTrip gas station near 67th and Glendale avenues in Glendale.
Lottery spokeswoman Nikki O’Shea said there is a timetable for the winner to claim their prize.
“They do have 180 days to claim it, but we do always advise that when we have a winner who wins a big chunk of money like this, that they consult their financial adviser and then come down to an Arizona Lottery office,” she said.
It must be Arizona’s lucky year. In April, one lucky person scored the $60 million Powerball jackpot. The lottery said the jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Littlefield, Arizona, at the Scenic General Store on Scenic Boulevard.
Numerous other winning tickets have been sold, including two $50,000 tickets that had yet to be redeemed.
If you’re feeling lucky, tickets for the next Powerball drawing can be purchased through 6:59 p.m. Tuesday. The drawing is for $300 million, one of the highest jackpots of the year.
“We did have a $403 million jackpot in February, but I think it’s definitely safe to say this is the second-largest jackpot of 2017 for Powerball,” O’Shea said.
