Man claims $1M ticket purchased in Killdeer
BISMARCK -- A lottery player left the North Dakota Lottery office with 10 times more money than he thought he had won recently. A $1 million Powerball with Power Play ticket, purchased at Cenex Convenience Store in Killdeer, was claimed at lottery headquarters recently.
The player, who chose to remain anonymous, arrived in Bismarck thinking he had won $100,000, according to a press release from the ND Lottery. Lottery staff informed the player that he had won $1 million. The winner was in complete shock and said he had no idea what he planned to do with the money.
The winning ticket, drawn on April 2, was carried around in a wallet for four days before the numbers were checked.
This is the 26th Match Five Powerball Prize in North Dakota. If a Powerball ticket is purchased with Power Play and matches all five white balls, it is automatically worth $1 million regardless of the multiplier, according to the release.
