WHEAT RIDGE TICKET WINS $1 MILLION POWERBALL PRIZE

DENVER – One lucky ticket sold in Wheat Ridge won $1 million in Saturday’s Powerball drawing. The ticket holder earned the $1 million prize by matching five numbers and selecting the Power Play option for an additional $1. The ticket was purchased at Farmers Market Company, 9491 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge. The store will receive $3,000 for selling the $1 million-winning ticket.

There was one other ticket that matched five numbers in Saturday’s drawing. Because the ticket holder did not choose Power Play, that ticket is worth $200,000. It was purchased at 7-Eleven, 4040 E. 8th Ave., Denver, which will receive a $2,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

One ticket sold in New Jersey matched all six numbers in Saturday’s Powerball drawing, winning a $211.7 million jackpot. The winning numbers were: 6, 16, 20, 31, 36 and the Powerball number was 8. The Powerball for Wednesday’s jackpot will be $20 million.

Proceeds from the Colorado Lottery’s games – Powerball, Cash 5, Scratch, MatchPlay and Lotto- stay in Colorado to improve the quality of life in the state. The Lottery has returned more than $2 billion to the state of Colorado since it was established. Through Great Outdoors Colorado, the Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado State Parks, the Lottery has provided funding for new trails, precious open space and wildlife protection.
