PHOENIX – Grocery shopping pays off – someone bought a lottery ticket at a Phoenix-area store and struck $1 million.

The Arizona Lottery said Tuesday the ticket was sold at the Fry’s Foods at Pecos and Higley roads in Gilbert. It was the fifth million-dollar ticket sold in the state this year.

The Powerball ticket, one of five in the U.S., matched all five white balls in Monday’s drawing, missing out on the red ball and the nearly $700 million jackpot prize.

A ticket sold in California hit the big jackpot, the seventh-largest in U.S. lottery history and the fifth-largest in the history of Powerball.

The winning numbers were 12, 22, 54, 66 and 69. The red Powerball was 15.

Other $1 million winners were sold in Florida, Massachusetts and Virginia. Also, a ticket sold in Tennessee matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million, because it included the Power Play feature for an additional $1.

Four others in Arizona each won $50,000, state lottery spokesman John Gilliland told KTAR News 92.3 FM.

The Arizona winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.

Anybody collecting is not exactly a lock, either.

Gilliland said another $1 million winning Powerball ticket sold in the Valley was expiring in November.

That ticket was sold at the Circle K on Shea Boulevard at Scottsdale Road for the May 22 draw.
