PHOENIX — The Arizona Lottery announced two big winners on Wednesday.

One lucky person bought a $294,000 winning lottery ticket on Tuesday. That Fantasy 5 ticket was sold at a Shell gas station near Bell Road and 3rd Avenue in Phoenix.

The other winner bought a $10,000 Mega Millions ticket on Tuesday at a Fry’s grocery store in Oro Valley.

However, both Mega Millions and Powerball are rolling.

Powerball players can win an estimated $687 million. The cash value is $327.3 million, Arizona Lottery said.

On the other hand, Mega Millions players have the chance to win $977 million in Friday’s drawing. That amounts to $461 million in cash.

As with all Arizona Lottery games, winners have to claim their prizes within 180 days of the drawing.
