Convenience Store Sells Winning Powerball Ticket, Florida Woman Also Wins $

If you bought a Powerball ticket in Watertown, you're going to want to check your numbers.  Handy Variety is a small convenience store on Common Street and it sold the winning Powerball ticket.  Watertown is located a few miles outside of Boston.  

The 758-million dollar jackpot is the second-biggest Powerball jackpot in history.


The winning numbers: 6-7-16-23-26, and the Powerball number was 4.

Six other tickets won $2 million apiece, and 34 others are worth $1 million. 


It's not a 758-million-dollar Powerball jackpot, but a woman who bought a winning lottery ticket at an Orlando-area Publix is probably not complaining.  Thirty-nine-year-old Penny Hitchcock claimed a three-point-seven-five-million-dollar prize from a Florida Lotto jackpot drawing held last Saturday.  

Hitchcock chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of two-point-six-million-dollars.  The store on State Road 434 in Altamonte Springs that sold her the winning ticket gets a bonus commission of 25-thousand-dollars.
