One lucky ticket matched the first five numbers – 02-11-19-21-42 – in Wednesday night’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. The winning ticket was bought at Mitch’s Party Store, located at 37504 Michigan Avenue in Wayne.
Wednesday’s drawing marked the fifth time in 2014 that a $1 million winning Powerball ticket was bought in Michigan. Three $1 million winning tickets were sold in a four-day span in February, and another one in early April.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot has grown to $203 million after no one matched all of the winning numbers, including the Powerball, in Wednesday’s drawing. The jackpot’s cash value is about $126 million.
The winner from Wednesday’s drawing should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect their big prize. The prize must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Tickets for Powerball are valid for one year from the drawing date.
Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to five times may be added to any Powerball play for only $1.
