Powerball ticket worth $1 million sold
at Indianapolis Speedway location
INDIANAPOLIS -- The same Speedway convenience store location that sold a $9.5 million Hoosier Lotto jackpot-winning ticket one week ago has done it again, this time in the form of a $1 million Powerball ticket sold for last night's drawing.
The ticket, which was purchased at the Speedway location at 8101 East 21st Street in Indianapolis, matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number.
The winning numbers in last night's drawing were: 2-5-31-39-41 PB:29. No one nationwide matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing, allowing Wednesday night's jackpot to grow to an estimated $90 million.
This is the second time in less than 10 days that a Hoosier Lottery retailer has produced multiple big winners in a short period of time. On Feb. 15, a Circle K location in Seymour sold a scratch-off ticket worth $50,000 to Martha Wehmiller and Lucinda Howe of Seymour and then two days later sold a $1 million winning scratch-off ticket to Seymour's Chris Anderson.
The mission of the Hoosier Lottery is to maximize net income for the state in a socially-responsible manner. In fiscal year 2012, the Hoosier Lottery generated $211 million in surplus revenue which was used to significantly reduce the motor vehicle excise tax for all Hoosier drivers and also supported the pension funds for retired Indiana teachers, police and firefighters. Player prizes for the fiscal year totaled $533 million and $60 million was earned by Indiana retailers on the sale of Hoosier Lottery products.
Since its inception in 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has produced more than $4.2 billion for the citizens of Indiana, $1 billion in commissions and bonuses for participating Indiana retailers, and has paid out more than $8.9 billion in player prizes.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly.
