Merrimack market sells big winning ticket

Merrimack market sells big winning ticket

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, and Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

He said that by selling the ticket, it felt like he himself had won.

The $559.7 million grand prize marked the sixth-largest Powerball jackpot on record and the seventh-largest USA lottery jackpot ever.

Panthers hand Rivera extension through 2020
Carolina has earned four playoff berths over the past five seasons under Rivera, tied for the most in the NFC over that span. Panthers coach Ron Rivera is getting a new contract, one that gives him some financial security but no extra job security.


The winning ticket - including numbers 12-29-30-33-61-26 - was bought in Merrimack's Reeds Ferry Market, just 30 miles from New Hampshire's capital city, Concord. The identity of the victor was not immediately revealed. The store will get a $75,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The initial jackpot was estimated at $570 million, but the actual jackpot at the time of the drawing was the lesser amount, $559.7 million, New Hampshire Lottery Spokeswoman Maura McCann said Sunday.

The victor, in Florida, took home the fourth-biggest windfall in the lotto's 15 year history. Rule changes to Powerball in 2015 and Mega Millions in 2017 made the games harder to win. The 7-Eleven store that sold the ticket wins $100,000.

A Powerball victor may choose to receive the jackpot in 30 annual payments or a one-time, lump-sum cash payment.

Winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. However, to elect the one-time, lump-sum cash payment option for $281.2 million the claim must be filed within 60 days, according to lottery officials.

Some lucky person in New Hampshire has won $560 million in a Powerball lottery, officials said Sunday, just two days after someone in Florida won a cool $450 million, helping push the weekend's total past $1 billion, apparently for the first time in USA history. Numbers for the jackpot will be drawn at 9:59 p.m. Saturday night.
