Powerball hit one day after single ticket in Florida claimed the $450 million Mega Millions jackpot.
By Associated Press
The New Hampshire Lottery says the winning ticket for the $570 million Powerball lottery jackpot was sold at a local convenience store in Merrimack.
Reeds Ferry Market, located in southern New Hampshire about 25 miles south of Concord, will receive a $75,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The winning numbers drawn Saturday night to claim the nation’s seventh largest jackpot were 12-29-30-33-61 and Powerball 26.
The winning ticket was drawn one day after a single Mega Millions ticket purchased in Florida matched all six numbers to claim $450 million.
The odds of winning Powerball are one in 292.2 million. The odds of winning Mega Millions are one in 302.5 million.
The Florida Lottery says the winning Mega Millions ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Port Richey. The retailer will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The winning numbers to claim the Mega Millions jackpot were 28-30-39-59-70-10.
The jackpots refer to the annuity options for both games, in which payments are made over 29 years. Most winners opt for cash options, which would be $281 million for Mega Millions and $358.5 million for Powerball.
