TOPEKA, Kansas – A Garden City man claimed a $1 million Powerball cash prize this morning. The lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous, matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball to win the large cash prize in the January 13 Powerball drawing.
The Garden City winner picked his own winning numbers on a $10 ticket and was literally two digits away from matching the Powerball number and winning the record-breaking Powerball jackpot of $1.6 billion. The winning numbers in the January 13 Powerball drawing were 04-08-19-27-34 Powerball 10. The winning numbers the winner had picked were 04-08-19-27-34 Powerball 08.
The winning ticket was purchased at Food Mart 3, located at 1505 Buffalo Jones Ave. in Garden City. For selling the $1 million winning ticket, the store is eligible to receive a $1,000 selling bonus.
In addition, a Manhattan woman has also claimed a $50,000 cash prize from the January 13 Powerball drawing. The winner, who asked the Lottery to keep her identity a secret, matched four of the first five Powerball numbers and the Powerball on a $10 Quick Pick ticket. Her winning numbers were 04-08-19-34-52 Powerball 10.
The winning ticket was purchased at Short Stop 12, located at 2010 Tuttle Creek Blvd. in Manhattan.
