A lucky player matched the five white balls drawn – 06-21-41-52-62 – in Saturday’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. The winning ticket was bought at the Belleville Fuel Mart, located at 496 Main Street in Belleville.
This is the fourth time in just over a week that a Michigan player has won $1 million playing Powerball. On Aug. 23, three players won $1 million. Those winning tickets were bought at:
- O’Connor’s Deli, located at 650 South Grand Street in Fowlerville
- Melvindale Liquor Market, located at 17973 Allen Road in Melvindale
- Old West Tobacco, located at 45029 West Pontiac Trail in Novi
Two of the prizes have already been claimed. Nancy Simmons, of Novi, bought her winning ticket at Old West Tobacco and claimed her prize on Aug. 29. The B-Squared Lottery Club, of Melvindale, bought their winning ticket at the Melvindale Liquor Market and claimed their prize on Aug. 29.
The $1 million winners should contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect the big prizes. The prizes must be claimed at the Lottery’s headquarters in Lansing. Tickets for Powerball are valid for one year from the drawing date.
