$1 Million Winning Ticket Bought in South End
The winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven store on Washington Street.
Someone who bought their Powerball ticket in the South End won $1 million last night.
Although no one in Massachusetts hit all six numbers to win the full $579 million Powerball prize, two people in Boston have each won $1 million.
The two winning tickets sold in Boston for $1 million were purchased at the 7-Eleven store at 1306 Washington St. in the South End and the City Convenience store at 23 Beacon St.
The owner of the 7-Eleven Store in the South End said he was "very happy for the winner, and very happy for the store, too," as the store will benefit from a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
There were two grand prize winners Wednesday night, according to the Powerball website. Neither was sold in Massachusetts.
There were four $1 million winning tickets in the state. Besides the two tickets sold in Boston, two more were sold in Southbridge and Rockland.
