Vermont Lottery officials announced today that a $1,000,000 Powerball ticket was sold at the Circle K convenience store located on Main St. in Lyndonville, VT. The winning ticket matched five out of five numbers, not including the Powerball. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 02, 09, 26, 45, 47, and the Powerball, 11. The Powerball jackpot was not hit Wednesday allowing the Powerball jackpot to roll to an estimated $203,000,000 for the September 7th drawing.
Margaret Allard, manager for the Circle K was thrilled. “I’ve been here 22 years and that’s the best news I’ve heard. I just hope it’s some local folks. We’ve got some great customers and all are deserving of it. Wow! I’m in shock! I can’t wait to give the news to my boss.”
Greg Smith, Executive Director of the Vermont Lottery also enthused, “I love to see Vermont players win BIG on the national and regional games we offer. We have had numerous 2nd prize winners already this year. Hopefully this is a warm-up for a large jackpot win by a Vermonter.”
Overall, almost 1,000 winning prize tickets were sold in Vermont for this drawing. All Vermont Lottery agents receive an extra commission for all tickets sold in their stores that win $500 or more so the Circle K will benefit as well.
