The winning $473.1 million Powerball ticket was sold at a Gilbert QT
Someone in Arizona became a multimillionaire overnight.
A single Powerball ticket hit the $473.1 million jackpot, and it was sold at the Quick Trip convenience store at 726 S. Gilbert Road, Arizona Lottery officials said late Wednesday night.
The winning numbers were 11, 36, 61, 62, 68, and the Powerball number was 4.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.
“This is the biggest ever jackpot won on a single ticket in our state, and it is a life-changing moment for this winner,” Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery executive director said in a statement.
The biggest Arizona Lottery prize ever claimed was a $410 million Mega Millions jackpot in June 2020, said Arizona Lottery spokesman John Gilliland.
The winner, who has not come forward yet, will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $473.1 million, paid in 30 payments over 29 years, or a lump-sum payment of $283.3 million. The player has 180 days to redeem their ticket.
A 2019 Arizona law specifies that winners of Arizona Lottery prizes of $100,000 or more automatically remain anonymous for 90 days but can choose to remain anonymous permanently.
