PHOENIX -- While no one in Arizona was lucky enough to win $600 million during Saturday night’s Powerball drawing, there are two people in the Grand Canyon State who will be enjoying a nice consolation prize.
The Arizona Lottery announced on Sunday that two $1 million Powerball second prize winning tickets were sold in Arizona.
One of the tickets was sold at a Chevron in Chandler near Germann and Alma School roads, while the second ticket was sold at a Giant service station in Safford.
“This is exciting news for the Arizona Lottery. The winning tickets were so close to winning the record-breaking $600 million jackpot, which shows that the big jackpot can be won in Arizona yet again,” said Karen Bach, director of budget, products and communications for the Arizona Lottery. “We look forward to meeting the winners and presenting them with their checks.”
Last year, a man in Fountain Hills won a share of a $587.5 million Powerball jackpot.
While a winner for this weekend’s drawing has not been announced, it has been revealed that a winning ticket was sold in Zephyrhills, Fla.
