SEEKONK, Mass. (WPRI) — After nearly 40 drawings, someone was lucky enough to win the sixth highest Powerball jackpot prize ever.
The winning ticket was sold in California for the nearly $700 million prize.
Although the big jackpot wasn’t won locally, the Massachusetts Lottery said there were two $1 million tickets sold in the Bay State.
One ticket, which has already been claimed, was sold at Quality Fuel on Route 44 in Seekonk. The second ticket, which has yet to be claimed, was sold at the Bradford Mobil Mart on South Main Street in Haverhill.
The owner of both stores will each receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning tickets.
The jackpot now returns to its baseline of $20 million for Wednesday’s drawing.
