There are two $1 Million dollar Powerballs somewhere in Boston today, lottery officials report. So grab your pitchforks and torches! It’s time to find them and ask for a loan.
The winning tickets were sold at “777 Convenience Store at 269 Main St. in Charlestown and at Tedeschi Food Shops at 52 Bedford St. in East Bridgewater,” ABC Boston reports.
Additionally, Lottery officials state that “Powerball sales in Massachusetts for Wednesday’s drawing totaled $32,970,847. Wednesday sales totaled $17,513,035.” Wow.
Wednesday’s lottery drawing held the largest jackpot in American Lottery history: a grand sum of nearly $1.5 billion.
Three winners were chosen during last night’s drawing and none of them have yet to come forward.
“Each of the three winning tickets is worth $528.8 million, the California Lottery said. The winning numbers were 08 27 34 04 19 and Powerball 10m,” Reuters explained in a report.
