PHOENIX (Sept. 28, 2009) – A lucky Arizona Powerball player is holding a $200,000 prize from Saturday’s drawing. As of noon Monday, the ticket still had not been claimed.
The retailer that sold the second prize ticket is the Circle K at 1015 N. Rural Road in Chandler. The winning ticket was the only one in the state to win the second prize of $200,000 by matching all five white ball numbers — and one of 15 tickets in the country to win the second prize. Saturday’s winning numbers were 18, 20, 34, 36, 39, and the Powerball was 19.
Powerball tickets for Wednesday’s drawing can be purchased until 6:59 p.m. that night. Because the Powerball was not hit Saturday, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing climbs to an estimated $170 million.
“The Arizona Lottery is thrilled to have a second-prize winner from Arizona,” said Jeff Hatch-Miller, executive director for the Arizona Lottery. “I encourage everyone who participated in Saturday’s drawing to check their tickets; they may hold a $200,000 prize.”
The drawings are broadcast during the 10 p.m. news on Channel 15 (ABC) in Phoenix, Channel 13 (CBS) in Tucson, and in Spanish on Univision Arizona. Powerball is played in 30 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
