GRAND JUNCTION TICKET WINS $1 MILLION POWERBALL PRIZE

DENVER – One lucky ticket sold in Grand Junction won $1 million in Wednesday’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 Horizon Drive Shell, 745 Horizon Drive, Grand Junction. The store will receive $3,000 for selling the $1 million-winning ticket. The winning numbers for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing were: 4, 36, 40, 44, 52 and the Powerball number was 33.

This is the second time this year that a player in Colorado has won $1 million on Powerball.  A ticket sold in Wheat Ridge won $1 million in the March 13th drawing. Last year, seven tickets sold in Colorado earned a $1 million winning Powerball prize. The $1 million winner from Wednesday’s drawing has not come forward yet to claim the prize.

Because no one hit the $125.3 million Powerball jackpot, the jackpot will rise to an estimated $150 million for Saturday’s jackpot. That jackpot is worth approximately $72.4 million in cash.

The Lottery has returned more than $2 billion to the state of Colorado since it was established.
