Are you holding Saturday's $1 million Powerball ticket sold in Killdeer?
BISMARCK - A winning Powerball with Power Play ticket purchased in Killdeer for Saturday's draw matched all five white balls, making it worth $1 million, according to a press release from the North Dakota Lottery. The lucky winner has yet to emerge.
The ticket was sold at Cenex Convenience Store in Killdeer, making it the largest ticket sold in North Dakota this year, according to the release.
The Lottery officials called the store at about 6:30 a.m. today, Cenex cashier Jesse Sipe said. "No way," was her first thought, she said. She added, word of mouth is getting out.
"If you have got tickets, we'd be happy to check them," she said.
Cashier Salena Tomkins said she's pretty shocked that more people haven't been in to check their tickets.
She answered the phone this morning and she said with a laugh, "I wish it was me." "It's a pretty cool deal."
Cenex also sold a $10,000 Powerball ticket for the Feb. 9 draw.
This is the North Dakota Lottery's 26th Match Five Powerball prize, according to the release. If a player purchases Power Play for an extra dollar and matches all five white balls, the prize is always $1 million regardless of the Power Play number drawn.
"If you have the winning ticket, be sure to sign the back and call the North Dakota Lottery office to make arrangements for claiming the prize," Lottery Director Randy Miller said in the press release.
Saturday's winning numbers are 6 - 22 - 34 - 43 - 45 - 23 and 2 is the Power Play, according to the lottery website and winning numbers hotline.
The Powerball jackpot for the Wednesday draw is estimated at $218 million.
