PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Jan 7, 2013) - The Arizona Lottery announces that a $1 million Powerball second prize winning ticket was sold in Fountain Hills for the draw on Saturday, January 5. This comes on the heels of the record-breaking $587.5 million Powerball jackpot winning ticket being sold at the 4 Sons Food Store also in Fountain Hills, and claimed by a Fountain Hills resident one month earlier on December 7, 2012.
The $1 million winning Powerball ticket was sold at the Circle K located at 17125 E. Shea Blvd. in Fountain Hills. The winning numbers are 26 - 30 - 49 - 51 - 54 PB 25.
"We are thrilled that Arizona has claimed another second prize Powerball win and it is even more exciting that another big winning ticket was sold in Fountain Hills," said Karen Bach, director of budget, products, and communications for the Arizona Lottery. "We look forward to meeting the winner and presenting them with their check."
This is the sixteenth $1 million Powerball second prize winning ticket sold in Arizona since $2 Powerball launched in January 2012.
$2 Powerball offers many appealing features to players, including better overall odds and jackpots that grow bigger, faster. The starting jackpot doubled from $20 million to $40 million and the second prize for matching all five numbers, without the Powerball, increased from $200,000 to $1 million.
