Powerballs-up! Disappointment for small shop owners in Massachusetts who thought they were pocketing $50k for
The second largest jackpot in United States history, $758.7 million, has been won by a single ticket bought in small town MA in an historic individual bonanza, lottery officials said on Thursday.
"The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax", Xinhua news agency quoted Wanczyk as saying on Thursday. "I called and told them I will not be coming back". "It's just a pipe dream that I've always had". Two were computer-generated Powerball tickets, and three used numbers that she chose.
The 20-year-old store clerk at the Pride Station & Store in Chicopee sold the ticket to the 53-year-old hospital worker who came up with the winning combination of numbers.
"We pay our people well; we give them full benefits", Bolduc said. The winning ticket, she said, was one with numbers that used family birthdays.
Massachusetts State Lottery officials have corrected the site where the single winning ticket for the Powerball $758.7 million jackpot was sold to Chicopee, not Watertown.
"The phone started ringing at 8 o'clock" Bolduc said.
Bolduc estimated that the Pride chain of stores sells thousands of tickets regularly, which he attributed to their good customer service and high rate of traffic.
"When manually recording the names of the retailers that sold the jackpot winning ticket and the $1 million winning tickets, the information was transcribed incorrectly".
It snapped a string of 20 consecutive draws without a Powerball jackpot victor.
The one-time cash option for Wednesday's jackpot was set earlier in the day at roughly $443 million by the multi-state lottery game that is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rica and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
According to the official Powerball website, the next jackpot to be awarded Saturday night is valued at $40 million.
